Creating civic engagement and the political will for climate solutions takes hard work, dedication, and funding. That’s why we created Arkansas Citizens’ Climate League, a non partisan 501(c)3. Our mission is to build civic commitment for climate action through empowerment, education, and encouragement. We love bringing together advocates, donors, students, and community and business leaders to make Arkansas a leader in the effort to protect the climate. Our successful annual April Climate Accord epitomizes this effort.
We are proud of our ongoing partnership with chapters of Citizens’ Climate Lobby in Arkansas and with local legislative initiatives such as the Arkansas for Container Deposit Law. Through the commitment of ARKCCL board members, donors and volunteers, we have provided essential resources for community outreach and organizing across Arkansas, as well as training opportunities for emerging climate leaders.
