The Bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus
Working Effectively Across Traditional Political Boundaries

with Stephanie Doyle, Senior Outreach Liaison for Citizens’ Climate Lobby

Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 2:00 p.m.

Is it possible to get anything done for the environment in our current political climate?

Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. Their consistently respectful, non-partisan approach to climate education and advocacy 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 their supporters to work in keeping with the concerns of their local communities, they work towards the adoption of fair, effective, and sustainable climate change solutions. Stephanie Doyle will talk about some of the strategies CCL has used both at the federal and local level, not just in talking with elected officials, but with the wider public, on climate change and solutions, and how to discuss topics that seem politicized beyond repair.

She will also touch on one of CCL’s biggest successes this past year, the House of Representatives, Bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus. The Caucus is now up to 60 Members (30 Republicans and 30 Democrats) and are working to find solutions that are both bipartisan and effective to reduce carbon emissions. Stephanie will talk about how the caucus was formed, the challenges it faces, as well as discuss how important and vital it is to the climate movement as a whole.
