CCL National Conference and Lobby Day, June 10-13, 2023
Omni Shoreham Hotel, Washington, D.C.

It's a new Congress, and we'll welcome them with the biggest single day of climate lobbying since 2019. CCL's conference includes everything you'll need to power up your climate advocacy - inspiration, best practices and information. This year, you'll get to put everything you learn to use when you meet with members of Congress on Capitol Hill and talk to them about climate change.
