2018 Georgia and Alabama Citizens' Climate Lobby Conference

January 27th, 2018 in Roswell GA!

Action to address climate change will happen only when enough citizens demand that Congress makes it happen. Join with CCL volunteers from Georgia and Alabama for a one-day conference in which we will hone our skills and inspire one another to be the advocates we need to be in order to pass effective legislation that preserves a livable climate.
Sessions at the conference will include:
  • Reaching out to Conservatives (no matter if you're conservative or liberal) led by CCL's Conservative Outreach Director Jim Tolbert!
  • A training session to ground new members in the effective methodology of CCL -- gratitude, respect and listening -- and provide the tools of advocacy, led by CCL's Director of Communications, Steve Valk
  • Outreach in your community: How to engage new people while tabling.
  • How to have an effective meeting with a member of Congress or their staff.
  • Training for Group Leaders by Don Addu, CCL Regional Coordinator for the southeast
  • A special breakout session, "Emotional and Spiritual Survival for Climate Activists” led by Jeff Joslin
As you can tell, the conference includes keynote speakers, breakout sessions, along with education and inspiration on climate solutions!  Cost is $34.95, or $9.95 for students or people under 30. Coffee and pastries will be provided to start your day, and lunch is included as well.  At the end of the day, we will go to dinner at a venue to be announced.

The church has two lots for parking, in the front and the back.  To enter the back parking area, go to the right side of the front lot, and keep going.
