Join the Portland Chapter of Citizen’s Climate Action. It’s easy to find a place to use your talents to support the cause.
We support CCL’s five core activities – lobbying, media relations, grassroots outreach, grasstops outreach, and chapter development.
We call these activities the “levers of political will.”
Lobbying: We train citizens to lobby in support of our Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal by building friendly relationships with our federally elected representatives.
Media relations: We train citizens to engage with and influence the media. We write letters to the editor and op-eds, meet with editorial boards, and work to place stories in all forms of media.
Grassroots outreach: We recruit and educate the public on climate solutions, citizen advocacy and how to participate with one’s government.
Grasstops outreach: We seek to educate, build partnerships with and gain the support of community leaders and non-governmental organizations.
Chapter development: The growth and development of our local chapters enables us to push on the other four levers for building political will.
