At this workshop, you will learn about the profound difference we make when we empower and inspire our members of Congress to action. You will learn how to become an effective advocate for climate solutions. You will learn about our methodology for developing relationships with members of Congress and the local media.
The purpose of Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL)
1. To create the political will for a livable world.
2. To empower individuals to have breakthroughs in exercising their personal and political power.
How does CCL Work?
CCL uses a mix of group empowerment and support which includes monthly national conference calls with a guest speaker. CCL trains volunteers to speak powerfully to their elected officials, the media, and their local communities in order to inspire members of Congress to be leaders and spokespersons for a sustainable climate. CCL volunteers meet with their members of Congress, launch letter-writing campaigns, write letters to the editor and Op/Ed pieces, and generate editorials to promote a sustainable climate.
Event Leader: Susan Secord is a Colorado coordinator for Citizens’ Climate Lobby. In 2013 she was a founding member of the Boulder CCL chapter of which she has been the co-leader ever since. With a background in business and industry training and a public school educator, she is an experienced CCL workshop leader. She is very excited to come to Colorado Springs to support the establishment of a CCL chapter in Colorado District 5. The Colorado Springs CCL chapter will be the tenth chapter in Colorado, and there will now be CCL chapters in every Colorado congressional district.

Colorado Springs does not get as much of the tax money as Pueblo does from the MJ money but I am sure enough it could feed all the children! Great Idea Francine.
What about all the money Colorado gets from marijuana?? How about allocating some of that $$??
What about checking out other sources for meat, like Zaycon Meats. No hormones, antibiotics. The district needs to take ideas from the community.
It is pretty easy to write about a problem - but much harder to solve one.
Shouldn't this article offer up some ideas for solutions being tried in other districts?
is there any specific site anyone would recommend to get a license to sell weed at a dispensary I've looked at a couple sites but all they have is requirements to get a license and nothing that has an application I do fit all the requirements and am looking to get into this business as I am an avid smoker anyways so why not go into a field I have loved for years and have experience in as a hobby :D

Let's see how many of the good folks on City Council who sit as the Utility Board once a month attend the presentation. Also be interesting to see how many Mayoral and council candidates show up.
Ms. Durand, there is a local group of folks that have been working to close the Martin Drake Power Plant near downtown Colorado Springs. We have a public Facebook page that you can join the Martin Drake Power Plant Retirement Club. If you want to learn more about the ill effects of Drake check out http://nocoalhere.com
There are five stages of political activism:
1. Like a Facebook page to express outrage.
2. Send an email to your friends and family.
3. Send a letter to the editor denouncing Drake.
4. Attend the Colorado Springs Utilities Board Meeting on February 18.
5. Inspire other like minded people to become activists against burning coal.
I hope to see you at the next CSU Board Meeting
Really wish I could get my hand on a nectar collector. But 250 $ is way to much for just a smoking apparatus. If you know of any knockoffs please post
I will have to disagree with the health stone part of this article. I have had one for about 3 month, and used it once your concentrate runs straight thru the porous stone and right in to your rig. worst 60 $ ever spent .
Sorry about the typo - I meant polar vortex instead of solar vortex. AWEA''s report is at:
