About this event

While most Americans understand that climate change is real, they disagree about how to solve it. Some seek solutions that maintain the status quo, while others believe that the problem requires major systemic changes. Many agree that the topic is polarizing. Bridging the Divide on Climate Solutions, a Braver Angels workshop designed in collaboration with Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL), teaches communication skills that will allow people to talk more constructively with each other about solutions to climate change.

Braver Angels requests you either print or have handy during the workshop this PARTICIPANT GUIDE, and to please have a writing utensil and extra paper to write on during the workshop.

Join us for this virtual workshop on Saturday, November 21, 9 am PT / 10 am MT / 11 am CT / Noon ET, and will run 2 hours.

Once you RSVP, you will receive the video conference meeting connection information in your Eventbrite confirmation email, and we will send a reminder in the days leading up to the workshop. If you do not receive either message or have trouble finding the meeting access information, please email conference.inbox@citizensclimate.org.

Organizer Citizens' Climate Education/Citizens' Climate Lobby

Organizer of Braver Angels Bridging the Divide on Climate Solutions Workshop

Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) is a non-profit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change.

Our consistently respectful, nonpartisan approach to climate education is designed to create a broad, sustainable foundation for climate action across all geographic regions and political inclinations. By building upon shared values rather than partisan divides, and empowering our supporters to work in keeping with the concerns of their local communities, we work towards the adoption of fair, effective, and sustainable climate change solutions.

In order to generate the political will necessary for passage of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act we train and support volunteers to build relationships with elected officials, the media and their local community.

Citizens' Climate Education (CCE), since its founding in 2007, has exponentially grown its global coalition to a remarkable 190,000+ registered supporters. Volunteers are organized into over 500 active chapters. Each chapter is run by a Group Leader and supported by State Coordinators and Regional Coordinators. Chapters work closely with their corresponding Congressional Liaison, who is a designated CCE volunteer leader that maintains the ongoing relationship between a specific member of Congress and local CCE chapters within that member’s district or state. At each level of our organizational model, CCE staff provides robust coordination, systems, training, and support to ensure volunteers are successful in their advocacy work.

Citizens’ Climate Education (CCE) and Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) are sister organizations that complement each other in strategically building political will for impactful climate solutions. CCE is a registered 501(c)(3) organization that provides key trainings, tools, and other educational resources to help volunteers become effective advocates for climate solutions. CCL is a registered 501(c)(4) organization that supports volunteer-led and other direct lobbying efforts on specific climate legislation. Each organization has its own governing board, operating budget, and audited financials. As CCL has a more public-facing presence, most public accomplishments are attributed to it. Nevertheless, most program activities are related to climate education rather than direct lobbying efforts, and come from the CCE budget.
