Hold Down the Ropes for Climate Action

The CT Coalition for Climate Action is comprised of environmental advocates, health experts, labor and municipal representatives who are vigorously advocating for updates to our state’s climate law, the Global Warming Solutions Act, and for increased investment in energy efficiency and renewable, clean energy programs.

“Holding the ropes” means standing behind the designated rope areas at the State Capitol and asking legislators whom are exiting or entering the Senate or House chambers to support your cause. Throughout the 2024 legislative session, we welcome activists to “hold the ropes” with us at the State Capitol whilst lawmakers are in their respective sessions.

This is a great opportunity for those looking to gain legislative advocacy experience!

Location: 300 Capitol Ave, Hartford, CT 06106
