I'm proud of the League's current work around our state: from sponsoring & assisting individuals to travel to Washington for first-hand experience with how Congress works, to building stronger relationships in south Arkansas, to empowering local community leaders to use the lever of political will to address our nation's climate crisis. We at the League understand that the conversation about climate solutions must be intersectional. Our aim is for these events to be a gathering of voices at the intersections to tell our stories, so that the solutions are as equitable and diverse as our experiences."
— Board Chair Soniyyah "Sonna" B. Key

We chose this year’s theme “Local Stories, Community Solutions” because of the incredible vulnerability and tenacity we witnessed and heard about during last year’s record flooding. Now more than ever climate change calls us together.
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters throughout the years, the Arkansas Citizens’ Climate League has been able to establish trusted relationships with local climate justice advocates and organizational partners throughout Arkansas. With 2020 underway, we’re actively laying groundwork and implementing ambitious yet realistic education and outreach plans with these friends on the frontlines of climate change and environmental injustice.
Part of the Accord campaign funds will go toward a free community Symposium this fall hosted by the University of Arkansas Fort Smith. Building on the theme of “Local Stories, Community Solutions,” this daylong conference will bring together Arkansans concerned about extreme weather impacts and interested in building greater personal and community readiness, awareness, and meaningful connections.
