Citizens’ Climate Lobby to conduct workshop at library

MADISON – A free workshop at Madison Public Library will show residents the ways to advocate for changes in the climate.

Volunteers with Citizens’ Climate Lobby, Huntsville chapter are hosting the Climate Advocate Training Workshop on March 11. The training can empower “everyday folks to enact tangible change to reduce the heat-trapping climate pollution warming our world,” Debbie Chang said. Chang is group leader of the climate lobby in Huntsville.

Participants will gather for registration and coffee at 9:15 a.m. The session opens at 9:30 a.m. and will end at 1 p.m.

“Citizens’ Climate Lobby or CCL is a nonprofit grassroots organization that aims to build political will for bipartisan solutions for climate change through respectful relationships with lawmakers,” Chang said.

The three-hour training will familiarize participants with productive, open conversations about climate change and give an overview of ways that they can meet and talk to their members of Congress about climate concerns. Participants also will gain useful skills for highlighting the issue and solutions to residents and leaders.

“So many people want to see action on the climate, but they are at a loss as to what they can do,” Chang said. “We are providing this free training to show our community that we can make a difference by advocating for achievable climate solutions.”

“Our leaders have options available to them that can slow the climate pollution harming Alabama, but they need to know it is important to us. Worsening heat waves, more violent storms and a growing number of crop-killing pathogens threaten farmers’ livelihoods,” Chang said.

Recent extreme weather has cost billions of dollars in damages for the U.S. military, she said. These patterns threaten the health and safety of American military personnel who serve overseas.

“We can help protect our community from the unpredictable impacts of climate change, such as extreme heat or flooding. This workshop will break the myth that we can’t make a difference and will inspire attendees to be the change they want to see in the world,” Chang said.

Everyone is welcome to attend the workshop. Refreshments will be available so participants should register at ClimateHuntsville.Eventbrite.com or RSVP with Huntsville@CitizensClimateLobby.org.
