Arkansas Citizens' Climate League


Our statewide commitment to community engagement and climate solutions reached a peak on April 27 with our Arkansas Climate Accord statewide benefit gala.  Four months in the making, this fundraiser was held simultaneously in Altus, Fayetteville, Fort Smith and Little Rock.  It united business owners, CCL volunteers, the public, donors and community leaders around climate solutions and climate advocacy. 

We had planned to link all the celebrations together via a simulcast, but technology glitches kept that from happening.  Each venue carried on brilliantly; a reminder that our Arkansas CCL family is held together by something much more profound than fiberoptic and keystrokes: the passion, savvy, and commitment of our volunteers and supporters.

Thanks to you and your generous donations of time, creativity, and money, the Climate Accord raised over $19,000!   I am so grateful.

As a direct result of this fundraising success, in June we’re sending a team of 18 Arkansans to Washington DC for CCL’s Annual International Conference and Lobby Day.  Together our team members represent all four Arkansas Congressional Districts and a broad diversity of Arkansas geography from Batesville to Conway, Fayetteville, Fort Smith, Gould, Hackett, Jonesboro, Little Rock,  Russellville, and Springdale .   We’ll be preparing for the Conference and Lobby day throughout May.

We appreciate you,

NO VOTER FRAUD IN LAMB    February 17, 2017             With all this talk about massive voter fraud in the last election, I wish to add my voice to this serious controversy. I vote in the tiny Lamb election district of the sparsely populated Scott County of the small state of Arkansas. I would imagine that Lamb is typical of many election districts throughout the US.


ARKCCL empowers Arkansans to advocate for a healthy environment and climate change solutions through education, encouragement and engagement.

Because of the success, the Citizens' Climate Lobby of Arkansas (CCL-AR) has had in promoting action on climate change and obtaining financial support the leaders of the group came together to form the Arkansas Citizens’ Climate League (ARKCCL) to create the nonprofit support for climate and environmental action in Arkansas. ARKCCL was established to build civic commitment for climate change action and education in Arkansas by empowering its citizens. Currently, ARKCCL is working with local chapters of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby to provide resources for emerging leader training and provide access to educational opportunities at the state and local level. A key focus of support is to provide these emerging community climate leaders access to training and education offered trough the Citizens’ Climate Education program.
