Colorado CCL volunteers are active on the following teams spanning multiple chapters. We'd love your help in one of these areas! And joining a team is a great way to meet and work with other Colorado CCL volunteers!
Colorado Conservative Caucus
This team invites CCL volunteers who are right of center, concerned about climate change, and supportive of carbon fee and dividend to join our vibrant and active team. In keeping with nonpartisanship, those of any political persuasion are welcome.
• For new volunteers who are right of center, see CCL Conservatives on Climate Change.
• Learn more about CCL National’s Conservative Caucus Action Team.
• If you’re a member of CCL Community, recording your political affiliation helps us understand how well we're doing with being fully representative of the country. If you identify as a Conservative, Republican, or right of center we would appreciate you telling us!
Colorado CCL State Legislation Action Team
This team evaluates legislation being considered by the Colorado State Legislature and recommends whether our Chapters support or oppose the bill. They also drive efforts to build relationships with the members of the key committees where environmental and energy legislation is considered. Each Chapter and CCL member is encouraged to also build relationships with their respective State House and Senate members.
Colorado CCL Diversity Outreach Committee
We are committed to CCL’s mission of creating a more just, livable world for all. This team focuses on helping our chapters better meet the needs of under-represented and under-served communities, who are most often on the frontlines of climate crises. We work to build alliances with existing environmental organizations that advocate on behalf of BIPOC communities, such as environmental justice groups. We also develop resources to help our chapters diversify so that they may represent, better serve, and politically empower all people of Colorado.
Metro Denver CCL Presenters Group
This team's mission is to get the CCL carbon fee and dividend message to as many live (now online) audiences as possible. Every member wears two hats: scheduler and presenter. New members usually start as a scheduler, finding community groups and businesses who may be receptive to the CCL message. This is excellent training and builds confidence for the presenter role. When ready, a scheduler can step into the presenter role. We provide members with organizational support including scheduling coordination, a stable of speakers, CCL branded and pre-fabricated slides, coaching, and practice opportunities. Our meetings are low pressure, friendly and supportive.
Colorado Social Media Team
You are invited to join this outreach team if you wish to enhance Colorado CCL's social media message. Sign up here to receive emails to amplify our social media message — likes, thank you's, comments, shares, retweets, etc. For national-level resources, check out CCL's Social Media for Lobbying training, and on Facebook, CCL Social Media Action Team.
Colorado CCL Newsletter Team
This team's mission is to inspire, inform and connect our Colorado CCL volunteers and supporters, with the goal of moving our supporters and members to the next level of engagement in CCL’s work. Right now we're a team of four members representing five Colorado CCL chapters. If you enjoy writing, editing, layout, or back-end web work, we'd love to have you contribute! Email us your contact information and relevant skills.
