Each Accord event will be hosted by Arkansas Citizens’ Climate Lobby volunteers. Come celebrate, enjoy delicious food and entertainment, and learn more about our work and accomplishments. More details about the individual events are coming soon!
Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL-AR) volunteers across Arkansas have played a vital role in building bridges to climate solutions by meeting with government representatives, writing editorials and op eds, attending conferences, reaching out to students and the general public, managing data, sending thank yous, joining radio programs, initiating conversations with businesses and community leaders, and organizing events such as the Arkansas Climate Accord.
Relationship building efforts like these by CCL volunteers across the country have created the political will for the bipartisan introduction of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act into both houses of Congress. The Energy Innovation Act is the boldest, bipartisan climate legislation in a decade. It’s effective, good for people, good for the economy, and revenue neutral. Its greenhouse gas reduction targets exceed both the clean power plan and our Paris commitments.
In addition to your participation, we need your financial support. Your sponsorship expands climate advocacy and action in communities across Arkansas, builds bridges between stakeholders, sends volunteers to state, regional and national advocacy trainings.
To get things off to a GREAT start an anonymous donor has pledged $7500 to match YOUR gift - double your impact for climate action!
As of JAN 28
$2910 towards our $7500 matching grant! Our overall goal is $25,000.

In appreciation of your generosity, we are proud to offer you a selection of art from the Natural State. For the fourth consecutive year, supporters can choose from an array of impressive watercolor pigment prints from The McNamara Collection. If you donate at our Ambassadors to Minister levels this year, you may choose instead to select a wistful resin figure created by Shelley Buonaiuto. The Arkansas Arts Center will provide memberships to our higher end sponsors. Your business LOGO will be proudly displayed at each event and publicity for the Accord.
"Donating to CCL has a tremendous impact on young professionals' ability to travel to DC twice a year for lobby and education days. The DC trips provide ample opportunities for learning, networking, and professional development while at the same time allowing us to feel like we are making a difference in the political climate. Thank you to everyone who donates and makes it possible for me to participate in the CCL DC trips!”
Sustainability Educator, City Of Little Rock & CCL Little Rock Chapter Leader
“As a recipient of CCL's generous donations, I am so grateful for CCL's support in providing me with education, a community, and a voice. Through CCL, I have learned that it is possible for common people across the partisan spectrum to come together on an important issue and respectfully make our voices heard to policymakers at the highest levels."
Project Manager, Entegrity
“I support CCL because it's critical that our national government unite and create a fast-acting and long-term bipartisan plan to address climate change, the largest threat to the health and happiness of all the worlds citizens. It's great to see so many businesses, organizations, and industries getting involved in the fight against climate change but government action on a national (and global) scale is required if we're going to make the necessary changes soon enough to save our planet.”
