Citizens' Climate Education (CCE) is an advocacy organization that educates policymakers and the public about smart solutions to climate change. Our donation will strengthen their nationwide coalition of climate advocates and help them create a powerful counterweight to paid lobbyists advocating for the fossil fuel industry.
Why They're Climate Smart
Bipartisan support is essential to creating lasting climate solutions. As long as climate change remains a partisan issue, solutions will inevitably be delayed or rolled back every time opposing parties assume power, and time is running too short for partisan gridlock.
CCE empowers a bipartisan coalition of over 210,000 climate advocates to educate policymakers and the public about effective and equitable solutions to climate change. CCE volunteers are organized into more than 400 active chapters across the country — representing 91 percent of all US congressional districts — and are trained to meaningfully engage their elected officials and local communities. Advocates meet with elected officials, write letters to members of Congress, get letters to the editor and op-eds published, host public outreach events, and build public support for action to fight climate change.
Why They Receive Our Continued Support
CCE has played a key role in establishing and growing the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus in the House and Senate, advanced numerous climate policies that have been enacted into law (at both the state and federal level), and helped get climate provisions passed through the 2022 Inflation Reduction Act. Our donation will help CCE bring congress together on national climate policies by reaching a wider audience, recruiting new members, expanding their social media presence, and acquiring new endorsements from influential businesses and community leaders.
