To The Leader

The blossoming Beaumont/Orange Chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby is offering a Climate Advocate Training workshop on Saturday, August 25 at the R.C. Miller Beaumont Public Library from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. The session is free and will teach citizens the nuts and bolts of building political will and affecting change in positive, constructive ways.

Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) has a unique approach of achieving change through building positive, respectful relationships with lawmakers and focusing on specific market-based, consumer-friendly solutions that have received support from conservatives and liberals alike.  The workshop will include a mini-lobbying training.

Citizens’ Climate Lobby is non-partisan and has an active and growing Conservative Caucus. We are very interested in new conservative members who are concerned about protecting our families and communities from the costs and risks of extreme weather.

“Citizens’ Climate Lobby members here in Southeast Texas and all over the country are telling us that their lives have changed since they have become involved with CCL,” says Katy Swiere, a local volunteer who is hosting the upcoming event. “They tell us they were worried about climate change and were looking for a way to make a difference. They are so grateful that CCL is showing them how and that there is a group of wonderful people working together for the same goal. We want to offer more of our neighbors the same opportunity.”

In addition to lobbying, there will be varied roles for volunteers depending on individual interests.  All are welcome to attend.  Since refreshments will be served at the August 25th meeting, please RSVP to Katy Swiere at You can also find us on Facebook at
