Empowering diverse voices to set the climate agenda for the next Congress!
On November 12-13, Citizens Climate Lobby and Citizens Climate Education will further educate ourselves and then our 535 Members of Congress on the need to pass bipartisan climate legislation in general, and 100% revenue-neutral, border-corrected carbon fee and dividend in particular.
Just one week after elections, as some the first citizens to talk about what’s next for Congress, we will be empowered to help move the new congress in a new direction. We call our November event Congressional Education Day (CED). It will be held at the Omni Shoreham, right off the red line Woodley Park Metro stop.
We welcome everyone, and particularly want more young people of diverse backgrounds. So we are reaching out to you to spread the word about scholarship opportunities for local students to attend our Congressional Education Day 2018 <https://citizensclimatelobby.org/2018-congressional-education-day/>.
We have both a student scholarship in the form of a registration fee waiver and a small $50 stipend for a diversity scholarship, meant to help with local transportation and food for the two-days conference.
To earn the scholarship for registration fee waiver: Please send a short paragraph sharing why you would like to attend this conference, what specific activity you are most excited about, and your time commitment for this event. Please send to Sabrina.Fu@CitizensClimate.org by October 23, 2018.
To earn the diversity scholarship consisting of registration fee waiver and $50 stipend: Please send two paragraphs consisting of:
(1) Paragraph sharing why you would like to attend this conference, what specific activity you are most excited about, and your time commitment for this event.
(2) Paragraph articulating your commitment to diversity and the importance of building a diverse and inclusive community to address climate change.
Please send to Sabrina.Fu@CitizensClimate.org by October 23, 2018.

For students who are not local enough to take the Metro in for the conference, we do offer HomeStay, a volunteer run program where local CCL volunteers near metro stations open up their homes for others to stay without cost.
