Welcome to the Pasadena-Foothills chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby, a nonprofit, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national legislation to put a price on carbon emissions.

The Foothills chapter encompasses the communities of East LA, Glendale, La CaƱada, Pasadena, Arcadia, Monterey Park and all those in between.

  • We train and support volunteers to engage their democracy and
  • Build relationships with elected officials and the media to generate political will to price carbon.

The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, HR 5744 has been re-introduced!  We feel that this bill is the fairest, fastest, and most effective action we can take to stop climate change.  We can remove heat-causing carbon by quickly phasing out fossil fuels.   See this minute and a half video about why we should put a price on carbon and find out more in this Energy innovation Act Q & A, especially in the sidebar, under Energy Innovation Act.  We support more solutions, including Building Electrification and Efficiency, Clean Energy Efficiency Reform, and Healthy Forests.  We need your help!

  • We meet on the second Saturday of the month in Pasadena and on Zoom.  Email us at CCL-foothills@gmail.com.  Call us at (626) 791-4583

  • Attend Citizens' Climate Lobby Fall Conference November November 3-4, 9AM to 2PM on Saturday, 10AM to noon on Sunday.  No charge, registration required. 

Join our entry in the Pasadena Black History Parade on Saturday, February 17!  We'll be marching in the Parade, encouraging climate action.  Have some fun and help us be noticed!  We want people of all ages to show their support.   Contact Rex at (626) 791-4583 and tell your friends!  More details to come.




The Pasadena/Foothills Chapter of Citizens' Climate Lobby is participating in the Pasadena Latino Heritage Parade and Fesitival again this year, Saturday, September 16, 2023.  Joining us are some of the folks from Pasadena 100!  We hope you join us too!  Here's a brief rundown for the day.    This is a chance to literally walk the talk about about climate threats.  Parade/Festival day is almost here, but you can still join us and perhaps share in carrying the banner!


The Parade: 

This year's parade theme is "Reaching for the Stars" and will feature a different, shorter route (about 1 mile- click here) than last year.  The parade starts at the north side of Madison School (Madison's address is 515 Ashtabula, but we will start on the street above and our space will likely be near 539 Buckeye Street.)  The actual route starts goes down Los Robles Avenue, starting 2 blocks north of Orange Grove Blvd, crosses the 210 freeway, west on Walnut Street, turns left on Walnut for 2 blocks and then left on Euclid, ending behind Pasadena City Hall .  Participants will be involved 9:30 AM to noon.  In our 2 previous Latino Heritage Parades, we focused on electric cars in 2019 and in 2023 our theme was dinosaurs, who suffered the fate extinction as they lost their livable world.   

This year, we focus on our own Sun, and the theme is “Reach for the Nearest Star, The Sun/ Alcanza La Estrella Mas Cercana El Sol”  We focus on the Sun as one of the key energy sources for the City of Pasadena of the future, whose stated goal is to replace fossil fuels in energy production with renewable sources.  We'll have a sun queen at the center, a few folks in sun panel suits, and others taking turns carrying the glitzy banner bearing our theme, carrying signs, wearing sun-themed and CCL shirts,  and other things fun and captivating.  Let's grab some attention for the climate!  Call or text Rex at (626) 616-4559 to ask questions or say "I want to join you!"  

Particulars for the Parade:

Please enter you information at the event sign-up page HERE.  Start time:  Meet on Buckeye Street, east of Los Robles by 9:30 AM.  Be sure to add your cellphone number on our sign up page so that I can text you.  We're supposed to find out our exact position (probably around #34, but may change.)  There are 46 entries in the parade.  

The Festival will be held at Centennial Square, in front of City Hall (100 N. Garfield Ave), from noon to 4:00 PM- maybe noon to 2 PM  and 2-4PM shifts?  Citizens' Climate Lobby will share a booth with Pasadena 100 (energizing the City of Pasadena to live up to their City Council's call to transition to 100% carbon free energy by 2030.  Pasadena 100 was very successful last year in getting residents to sign postcards urging City Council to call for the transition.  Now that the Council has passed a motion to do this, Pasadena 100 needs to show there is community support and to provide some pressure on Pasadena Water & Power to create a strong action plan and bring it to fruition.  CCL volunteers will promote climate awareness, recruit new CCL members, and we get to know the Latino community a little better!  Our entry will focus on reaching out for our closest star, the Sun!  Using Masks, costumes, signs and other ideas to come, we'll make climate part of the discussion!  Join us!  Contact Rex Mayreis

Bipartisan Carbon Pricing Bill Introduced!

Policy solution!

Extended webinar explaining the bill

As many of you have seen, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act has been introduced in the House! While the bill may not be perfect, this is a great start. Please take a look at it and consider actively supporting it, by sharing on social media, writing or emailing your representative, and just talking about it with others. If you saw the recent National Climate Assessment it should be clear that we need to act NOW. There are effective bi-partisan climate change solutions!
