Climate advocate training workshop in Nevada City
January 10, 2019
The Nevada County Chapter of the Citizens' Climate Lobby is offering a Climate Advocate Training workshop from 2:30 to 6 p.m. on Jan. 21 at the Madelyn Helling Library, 980 Helling Way in Nevada City. The session is free and will teach citizens the nuts and bolts of building political will and affecting change in positive, constructive ways.
Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL) has a unique approach of achieving change through building positive, respectful relationships with lawmakers and focusing on specific market-based, consumer-friendly solutions that have received support from conservatives and liberals alike. Citizens' Climate Lobby is non-partisan, and has an active and growing Conservative Caucus. CCL is very interested in new conservative members who are concerned about protecting our families and communities from the costs and risks of extreme weather.
"Citizens' Climate Lobby members here in Nevada County and all over the country are telling us that their lives have changed since they have become involved with CCL," says David Whitehead, Group Leader of the Nevada County Chapter. "Several have told me the were worried about climate change, feeling helpless, and looking for a way to make a difference. I'm hearing that taking action on climate is tremendously empowering, and is giving people resolve in working with others toward the same goal. We want to offer more of our neighbors the same opportunity."
In addition to lobbying, there will be varied roles for volunteers depending on interests. All are welcome to attend. RSVP at https://nevadacitycatw.eventbrite.com.
