Citizens’ Climate Lobby Welcomes Students

John Sabin, Oberlin Resident

To the Editors:

Thank you for your story on the accomplishments of the Oberlin Project (“Oberlin Project Ends Eight-Year Run,” March 10, 2017). Executive Director Sean Hayes is quoted as saying the Oberlin Project “‘does not need to exist’ for Oberlin students to get involved in local environmental work.” Indeed, for students who wish to be involved in ongoing environmental work, one option to consider is Citizens’ Climate Lobby. A new Oberlin chapter of this international, nonpartisan, volunteer organization meets every second Saturday of the month at 1 p.m. at the Oberlin Public Library. Our next meeting is April 8. The organization aims to train volunteers to “create the political will for a livable world” through direct and indirect lobbying efforts. You can read more about the organization at or contact us at o[email protected]. We would love to have you join us!
