Event description


Welcome to the 2019 Idaho and Eastern Washington

Citizens’ Climate Lobby Conference!

“Bridging the Climate Divide”

Pre-Conference Public Talk and Dinner Reception (free events): Friday, April 19, 2019

Conference: Saturday, April 20, 2019

Our conference gives newcomers and seasoned CCL members the opportunity to connect, learn, practice skills, and strategize to move our country toward climate solutions.

Join the conference and be energized and empowered to act for climate solutions!

New to CCL? Meet the group that persuaded Republicans and Democrats in Congress to work together to introduce a bipartisan climate change bill. Who are we? Everyday citizens just like you!

Already a CCL member? Learn how you can help get the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act passed in Congress!

CCL builds political will for action on climate change. We believe that climate change is a bridge for elected Democrats and Republicans to come together and enact solutions. CCL advocacy was key in the introduction of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, the first bipartisan climate bill in a decade.

For questions, please email Judy Meuth (judymeuth@gmail.com).


Everyone is welcome, from those new to CCL to experienced volunteers. This conference includes Idaho and Eastern Washington (east of the Cascades), a subset of the Pacific Northwest Region of CCL.
