March Endorsements

February and March were busy months for our chapter, featuring meetings with the Columbia-Montour Chamber of Commerce, the Montour Area Recreation Commission, several student groups on campus, and staffers from Rep. Meuser’s office. After a productive meeting with the Bloomsburg Ministerium, we received an endorsement signed by representatives from six local congregations, demonstrating that local religious bodies are on board for carbon pricing. The full statement is available here.

January Endorsements

In January we secured our first two endorsements of the new year! On January 14 we received a statement of support from the Economics Department at Bloomsburg University, and on January 25 the Bloomsburg Town Council voted 6-0 to adopt our resolution in support of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. Both documents are filed on our Endorsements page, where we hope to add as many others as possible until Congress passes an effective carbon pricing bill. Stay tuned!

Letter #1 – Time to Act!

Today is the first day of the first full week of a brand new year and Bloomsburg CCL is back and re-branded, this time as a town chapter. After a strong start in 2019, the Covid crisis hit Bloomsburg University hard in 2020, and our chapter felt the pain. As part of our continuing adaptation to the state of things, we’ve decided to use our unwelcome new Zoom-based lifestyle to welcome in some new members from the greater Bloomsburg area. We are now bigger and stronger than before, with lots of ambitious plans for the new year. For information on how to get involved, please email us at bloomccl@gmail.com.

Our first letter of 2021 appeared on January 3 in the Press Enterprise. It is co-authored by chapter head Eric C. Miller and CCL Executive Director Mark Reynolds.
