The Montana chapters of Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) will hold a virtual Climate Advocate Training workshop for anyone interested in climate solutions, from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 14.

CCL is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, volunteer-driven organization. The Montana chapters are part of a network of hundreds of chapters around the country working to build political will to respond to climate change.

“In this interactive workshop conducted by Montana CCL leaders, you’ll not only learn about CCL’s vision, we’ll help participants find a role so they can hit the ground running,” said Kristen Walser, Bozeman resident and CCL MT state co-coordinator.

By empowering volunteers to use the tools of democracy, CCL works toward the adoption of fair, effective and sustainable climate change solutions. The bi-partisan legislation Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (H.R. 763), endorsed by CCL, is effective in reducing America's emissions by at least 40% within 12 years while creating jobs and benefiting the economy. The money collected from the carbon fee is allocated in equal shares each month to all Americans to spend any way they choose.

Workshop participants will not only learn the basics of becoming an effective climate advocate, but will also have the opportunity to practice a mock lobby session with a member of Congress.
