Corporations have lobbyists. Now Earth does too.

Why did corporations and special interests pour 4 BILLION DOLLARS into lobbying in 2022 alone?

Because it works.

Citizens’ Climate Lobby educates, trains, and organizes regular people across the U.S. to have the same skills as paid lobbyists. But our volunteers lobby for the good of the planet instead of for profit.

We are nonpartisan, grassroots, and highly respected in Congress for our work.

We build support for climate action in communities across America

A majority of Americans are worried about climate change, but only 8% are active. This is because they have no idea how to help. Through outreach events in local communities, our volunteers give direction for how people can get involved.

We get good climate laws passed

We advocate for good climate laws – the ones that will ensure a healthy climate and environment for generations to come. Last year, we helped pass the biggest climate bill in American history, the Inflation Reduction Act.

By giving to CCL, you’re helping fund a nationwide lobbying force that puts the planet over profits. Lobbying has worked for corporations. Help us make it work for Earth, too.

We can’t solve climate change alone

Solving climate change isn’t a challenge of science, but of political will. Our grassroots volunteers build political will for climate action across the U.S. with a nonpartisan approach.

Solutions we're working towards

We work on passing legislation in the following key areas that will drive America’s carbon pollution down and build bridges in Congress and our communities:
