Members of the McHenry County Citizens' Climate Lobby recently joined more than 1,300 members from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Nigeria, and France for the Citizens' Climate Lobby annual conference in Washington, D.C.

The Citizens' Climate Lobby is a nonprofit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on a national policy to address climate change.

The volunteers met with Illinois members of Congress and/or their aides: Rep. Randy Hultgren, Rep. Daniel Lapinski, Rep. Peter Roskam, Rep. Danny Davis, Rep. Adam Kinsinger, Rep. Cheri Bustos, Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, Sen. Tammy Duckworth, and Oklahoma Rep. Steve Russell.

The focus of the meetings were to ask support for a carbon fee and dividend solution to reducing carbon emissions, returning all revenue to American households. For information, contact storiesfromtheheart@comcast.net.
