Join the Citizens’ Climate Lobby Delaware Chapter

Delaware, Ohio, Ohio
  auriCitizens’ Climate Lobby is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization working to create the political will for a livable world.  Our chapter is just one of hundreds of chapters in the nation and around the world.

We are laser focused on a specific piece of legislation and a proven strategy to gain its passage. We are working for the passage of Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, the climate change solution that economists and climate scientists alike say is the “best first-step” to preventing the worst impacts of a warming world.

Our chapter members spent more than two years building a relationship with former US representative’s (Pat Tiberi, R, 12th District of Ohio). We met with his legislative assistants on many occasions and then directly with Representative Tiberi at his office.  We developed a respectful relationship with him over time, and after meetings with us and one that we set up with community businesses he joined the Climate Solutions Caucus. This was a hard-earned accomplishment, as well as a testament to the polite respectful CCL way.  After 17 years in congress, Mr. Tiberi decided to retire, effective 15 January 2018.  We have already had one meeting with a staff member of our new representative, Troy Balderson (R, OH 12). We hope to develop a strong relationship with Representative Balderson and hope to convince him to support the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. The most recent re-districting has moved our chapter area into OH04. Our current representative is Jim Jordan (R, OH 4).

Other recent activity, many members have written letters to our congressional representatives. We have had at least 22 letters or op-ed pieces published in local newspapers in the past 15 months. In the past year we organized several outreach and/or tabling events in our community. We have begun a series of discussions with local farmers about climate issues and agriculture, as we develop a working relationship with the local agricultural community.  Our group’s advocacy before our County Board of Health resulted in a strong resolution calling for action on climate change. For the past year our group has been meeting with members of our city council and parks district board in efforts to encourage them to develop and pass similar resolutions. Each year we are involved in local “earth day related” events.  In 2017 we held a local March for Climate, and in 2018 a Rally for Climate Action on Earth Day. During the current Covid-19 crisis we have been meeting virtually. Join us in our monthly Zoom meeting on the second Saturday each month.

Many of our members participated (virtually) in the June 2020 CCL conference, including a virtual lobby meeting with a representative at Troy Balderson's office. In June 2019 four members participated in CCL’s international conference and Lobby Day in Washington DC, and five of our members went to the Great Lakes Regional Conference in Oct. 2018.
