Citizens' Climate Lobby

Andy Willette & Laura Haule

Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy climate change organization focused on national policies to address the national and global climate crisis. We work to build "political will for a livable world" by training and supporting volunteers to build relationships with elected officials, the media and their local community. We have hundreds of chapters across the US and internationally.

 

Our Minneapolis chapter has tables at area farmers markets and other community events including the State Fair. This summer and fall we are also organizing post card writing events to bring environmentally minded voters to the polls.

 

Andy Willette has been volunteering with the Minneapolis chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby since 2017, he has been chapter organizer for the past couple of years. Andy had a 28-year career in Information Technology before transitioning to an assistant role at Open Circle Adult Day Services. He is involved with various other climate action efforts, including at his church, at his workplace and as a part of the Environment and Sustainability Commission for the City of St. Louis Park.

Laura Haule started with CCL in 2017 as part of the Naperville, IL chapter. She is a retired librarian, and when she moved to Minneapolis in 2022 she brought her passion for CCL with her. Laura enjoys volunteering for CCL because there is so much training and information available to become a more knowledgeable participant, and because CCL encourages people to use their strengths. She has participated in lobby meetings, has had several letters to the editor published, and leads the monthly action campaigns for our chapter.
