YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY JOINING A 
CLIMATE REALITY™ CHAPTER

 

A group of citizen activists attending a chapters presentation.

Across the country, everyday Americans are joining Climate Reality chapters and working together for practical climate solutions and demanding a just transition in communities from sea to shining sea.

These friends, neighbors, and colleagues are bringing clean energy to their towns, advocating for ambitious federal climate policies in the United States, standing strong in opposition to petrochemical development projects, and so much more. Most of all, they’re working together to make a real difference for our planet where it matters – and you can too! 

Join a Climate Reality chapter today and join the fight for a sustainable, just, and equitable future.

JOIN OUR NETWORK OF CLIMATE ACTIVISTS

Yes, climate change is big. The good news? You don’t have to fight it alone.

Today, our US branch operates chapters in 140 communities and campuses from coast to coast.

Chapters give you the chance to meet and work with other passionate activists and advocates to advance clean energy and other just climate solutions in your community.

Some chapter members bring a lifetime of experience. Some are just getting started as activists. The only requirement is a commitment to making a difference.

Chapters have become a vital force for progress in 140 communities and campuses nationwide, supporting Climate Reality’s national campaigns, fighting for environmental justice, and helping bring clean energy to major cities and rural towns alike.

Connect with the chapter in your community or campus today by contacting us through the form here. Plus, if there’s not already a chapter active close to you, we can help you start one!

Why Join a Chapter

ALEX HOLLAND

Alex Holland

Dallas Forth Wort TX: Co-Vice Chair​

"I was introduced to Climate Reality through another member after taking a class on the intersection of social work and environmental justice. I was part of the first Climate Reality Virtual Leadership Training in the Summer of 2020, and before long the members of the DFW Chapter saw my enthusiasm, pulled me in, and put me to work! I love being part of a bigger movement where we can join together to work for action on climate at every level, from demanding better from our elected representatives to educating friends and family on why this is important for every single one of us. Climate Reality has given me an opportunity to funnel my passion into activism, as well as a chance to enter a community that supports and encourages me, and for that I am truly grateful!"

BERNADETTE OSBORN

Bernadette Osborn

Chapter Co-Chair: Lansing MI​

"Almost two years ago, I heard about Climate Reality, and the next thing I knew, I co-founded the Lansing Climate Reality Chapter at 16 years old. Through my climate journey, I have had the opportunity to meet so many incredible people, find my voice, and become a changemaker in my community and globally! The Climate Reality Project has helped me become who I am today and has kick-started my environmental career. I will be forever thankful."
