From the Morristown Chapter of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby
Citizens’ Climate Lobby offering Climate Advocate Training workshop on March 25 in Morristown
The new Morristown Chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby is offering a Climate Advocate Training workshop on Saturday, March 25, 2017, from 2 pm to 5 pm at the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship, 21 Normandy Heights Road, Morris Township.
This free workshop will teach citizens how to build political will and bring about change in positive, constructive ways.
Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) has a unique approach of achieving change through building respectful relationships with lawmakers and focusing on specific, market-based, consumer-friendly solutions that have received support from conservatives and liberals alike. The workshop will include a mini-lobbying training.
Citizens’ Climate Lobby is non-partisan and has an active and growing Conservative Caucus. We are particularly interested in balancing our liberal members with new conservative members who, like us, are concerned about protecting their families and communities from the costs and risks of extreme weather.
“Citizens’ Climate Lobby members here in Morris County and all over the country tell us they are worried about climate change and have been looking for a way to make a difference,” says Linda DeLap, one of the two co-leaders of the Morristown chapter.
“I’m grateful to be among a friendly group of enthusiastic, well-informed people working together for a common goal. Co-leader Gary Schneider and I want to offer this opportunity to more of our neighbors.”
In addition to lobbying, there are various roles for volunteers, depending on individual interests. All are welcome to attend the workshop. Because refreshments will be served at the March 25 meeting, please RSVP to Linda DeLap no later than Wednesday, March 22.
