Welcome!

Welcome to the Austin Chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, a volunteer created and managed website (new: voicesofaustin.online). The Chapter includes Austin-area members who live in TX10, TX17, TX21, TX25 and TX35 Congressional Districts.

We meet (mostly virtually) on the second Saturday of each month following the monthly Citizens’ Climate Lobby national call that takes place at noon Central Time. Notifications and links for the national and chapter calls are sent a few days prior to each meeting via the free community platform. One can join the chapter (any chapter) from the “join” button on this page, Citizens’ Climate Lobby: Take Action on Climate Change Solutions. Then CCL membership will send a login/password. For a map of all local and at large chapters of Citizens’ Climate Lobby across the United States and globally, follow this link.

January 14, 2023 national meeting. We will share future monthly meeting links on this page!

The Austin chapter structure is guided by the Five Levers of Political Will. Members are encouraged and guided in their volunteer activities within these “levers” that best fit their passions and skills. If you want to learn more, contact a Lever Leader!

This website was created in part to provide dedicated URLs for the letters and opinions of our members. Newest letters are listed first. If you subscribe via email, you will receive posts as they are published on the website. When available, we link back to the media page where the letters were published. We wish to thank our media partners for publishing the opinions of our members. We deeply appreciate their interest in our work.

Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change solutions.

Our consistently respectful, nonpartisan approach to climate education is designed to create a broad, sustainable foundation for climate action across all geographic regions and political inclinations. By building upon shared values rather than partisan divides, and empowering our supporters to work in keeping with the concerns of their local communities, we work towards the adoption of fair, effective, and sustainable climate change solutions.

In order to generate the political will necessary for passage of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act we train and support volunteers to build relationships with elected officials, the media and their local community.
