Working Together to Build Civic Commitment for Climate Action & Justice
Empowering individual civic engagement for climate and racial equity solutions takes hard work, education, and funding. That's why we created Arkansas Citizens' Climate League (ARKCCL, the League) a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
ARKCCL’s major funding activities include our signature Arkansas Climate Accord in the spring and the Climate Change Costume Challenge in the fall. These activities provide the resources to fulfill our mission.
ARKCCL facilitates dialogue with communities and individuals in southern Arkansas to hear concerns about the detrimental impacts of environmental and climate changes. ARKCCL partners with the chapters of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby in Arkansas to provide the necessary resources for community outreach & educational and training opportunities for emerging climate action leaders.
ARKCCL works with PACE (Police and Community Engagement) to ensure communities of color have a voice in their community.
ARKCCL provides administrative assistance to the Arkansas for Container Deposit Law campaign.
This effort works towards place a deposit on all beverage containers in the stare. Reducing production of these containers not only solves a litter problem but reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
