The D.C. chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby is holding an online letter writing party on Wednesday, May 20 from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. EDT.
The letters will be addressed to media outlets to voice the public’s opinion on their narrative regarding the climate change issue.
“We are taking the media narrative around climate into our own hands,” the organizers wrote in the event brief, adding “you can write letters to the editor, get trained on how to write letters to the editor, write content that inspires action on climate change, and submit it using CCL’s media tool.”
The “May Letter Writing Party” is free to attend, but you need to register through Eventbrite and have the video conferencing app Zoom on your digital device.
A Zoom link to take part in the event will be sent to participants.
Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a California-based non-profit, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. It has more than 180,000 members.
“Our consistently respectful, nonpartisan approach to climate education is designed to create a broad, sustainable foundation for climate action across all geographic regions and political inclinations,” the group says on its website.
Citizens’ Climate Lobby has been primarily working to build the political will for the passage of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, by training volunteers to influence elected officials, the media and their local community.
