Director of Field Development
Citizens' Climate Lobby
Elli Sparks serves as the director of field development for Citizens’ Climate Lobby, a non-profit, pan-partisan, grass-roots organization that empowers people to have breakthroughs in personal and political power so we can build the political will for a livable world. Currently, CCL focuses laser-like on getting Congress to pass a steadily rising fee on fossil fuel with revenues returned directly to households. Elli supports volunteers as they start local chapters of CCL. With her husband and dedicated interns, Elli runs Abundance Farm located in central Virginia. Pigs, beef cattle, dairy cows, chickens, and ducks rotate daily through paddocks to sequester carbon and provide nutrient dense foods. Abundance Farm sells direct to consumers at farmers markets in Richmond, VA, through a herd-share program on-line, and wholesale at local natural food stores.
