Those interested in forming a Yellow Springs chapter of Citizens for Climate Lobby, or CCL, are invited to meet on Saturday, Jan. 25, 12:30–2 p.m. in the auditorium of the Vernet Ecological Center, 405 Corry Street.

CCL is a bipartisan organization that aims to empower citizens to create the political will for federal legislative representatives to face the challenges of global climate change. CCL provides education, coordination and support for its members to create political will through lobbying, working with media, building grassroots support and developing relationships with community leaders and nongovernmental organizations, both nationally and locally.

CCL is focusing on supporting passage of House Resolution 763, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. The upcoming meeting will begin with a brief review of efforts to date, after which the group will discuss and decide how best to proceed.
