LWVIN supports CCC

Confront the Climate Crisis (CCC)
is a grassroots organization of high school students fighting for climate justice in Indiana and was launched a little more than a year ago by a group of West Lafayette High School students and has expanded to include students in Evansville, Indianapolis, Terre Haute, Fort Wayne, Gary, Hammond, Carmel, Alexandria, Kokomo, and more.

State Senator Ron Alting will be introducing both a climate resolution and a climate bill in the upcoming Indiana General Assembly to implement the work of the high school student group. CCC has asked organizations to sign on to support these measures in the upcoming IGA.  

On their website they note a coalition with other high school student groups and organizational partners, i.e. Yellowwood Youth, Alexandria Tree Huggers, NWI Youth Climate Council, Indiana Climate Coalition, Boiler Green Initiative, Purdue Student Sustainability Council, Sierra Club Hoosier Chapter, Earth Charter Indiana, Hoosier Interfaith Power and Light.

For the past year, CCC has gathered individual signatures asking for statehouse action.
