Welcome to the Citizens’ Climate Lobby Great Lakes Regional Conference
Saturday, October 6, 9am EDT - Sunday, October 7, 12:00pm EDT
You are invited to the annual Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL) Great Lakes Regional Conference! CCL builds the political will for our elected representatives to take action on climate change.

Our Regional Conference is an opportunity for newcomers and experienced CCL members to gather to learn, practice skills, inspire each other, and strategize in moving our country toward climate solutions. The Great Lakes Region - Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio - is large and diverse, but we share common concerns due to the climate impacts already manifesting in our wildlands, cities and farms.

Rising temperatures, prolonged wildfire seasons, drought, flooding, and insect infestations are already impacting our communities, agriculture and outdoor recreation industries. The harm of inaction and the benefit of action have never been higher.

For more information, contact Elizabeth Dell: elizabeth.dell@citizensclimatelobby.org
