In order to generate the political will necessary for passage of its Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal the organization trains and supports volunteers to build relationships with elected officials, the media and their local community. CCL directly supports the Higher Education Climate Lobby to work on its behalf in higher education.

Schools for Climate Action
Schools for Climate Action is a non-partisan, grassroots, youth-adult campaign with a mission to empower schools to speak up for climate action. They advocate for elected officials to to combat the climate crisis in order to protect current and future generations. They help school boards, student councils, school environmental clubs, PTA's, teachers' unions, and school support organizations to pass resolutions that do 3 things: drive a paradigm shift so people recognize climate change as a generational justice and equity issue; clearly articulate the political will for all elected leaders, especially Members of Congress, to support or enact common-sense climate policies (such as carbon pricing, 100% clean energy policies, green infrastructure investments, and just transition plans); and celebrate and expand school district responses to climate change.

For young people concerned about their opportunities in a world shaped by the climate crisis, Climate Reality Campus Corps offers the chance to take their future into their own hands, starting in their college dormitories, classrooms, and campus quads.
