Citizens’ Climate Education

2021-22 Donation $40,000
Donations to Date: $130,000

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 195,500 climate advocates to educate policymakers and the public about effective and equitable solutions to climate change. CCE volunteers are organized into more than 455 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

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.
