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.

WHAT IS A CHAPTER?

Whether you’re a lifelong environmentalist or a new activist just starting out, there’s a place for you in your local Climate Reality chapter.

Climate Reality chapters bring together people of all backgrounds and lived experiences to push for practical clean energy solutions in their communities and fight for ambitious climate policy on the federal level.

Chapters give members the opportunity to draw on Climate Reality’s support and expertise, while creating and executing their own plans for climate action at the local level.

Already, Climate Reality chapters have become a vital force for progress, helping expand clean energy alternatives, tackling the legacy of fossil fuels in low-income communities, and pushing for federal climate policy, to name just a few of the many campaigns currently underway.

The only pre-requisite to joining a chapter is the desire to make a difference. And with over 140 chapters and growing in cities, towns, and campuses across the US, there are many ways to get involved with other passionate climate activists in your community.

WHY JOIN?

By joining your local Climate Reality chapter, you’ll:

  • Connect with a local network of passionate climate activists just like you.
  • Gain the skills and have access to the resources you need to help you make a difference.
  • Help bring real climate solutions to your community.
  • Ensure the US continues to move forward at this critical time in the fight for federal climate action and policy.

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!"

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."

100% COMMITTED™We have the power to change

The shift to a clean energy economy is on – and accelerating by the day. Today, cities, businesses, and colleges and universities of all sizes are seeing the threat of climate change and taking action by switching to affordable clean energy from wind, solar, and other power sources. By choosing clean energy, they’re cutting their greenhouse gas emissions and creating a healthier environment for their citizens and customers – and a brighter future for our planet.

Ready to join them? Join Climate Reality’s 100% Committed™ campaign and pledge to help your community, business, or school shift to 100% clean energy. With the cost of clean energy plummeting every year, it’s never been easier or more affordable.
