  2. Help launch a Citizens' Climate Lobby chapter at UIUC

    Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) is a non-profit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. It exists to create the political will for climate solutions by enabling individual breakthroughs in the exercise of personal and political power. With over 480 chapters worldwide, CCL organizes by establishing local chapters in congressional districts. Working as a team you’ll experience the profound difference people can make by empowering and inspiring their elected representatives, local media, and community.
