    Charlotte, NC

    The mission of The Climate Reality Project: Charlotte, NC Chapter is to catalyze local solutions to the climate change emergency by making urgent action a necessity in our community. We do this by establishing a community of local climate activists who are working to raise awareness through various educational activities and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis. We are partnered with other local activist communities such as the NAACP, 350.org, the Sunrise Movement, the Sierra Club, Charlotte Mecklenburg Climate Leaders, various UNC Charlotte student organizations, and our local youth strikers. We are committed to prioritizing our local communities that are feeling the most dramatic impacts of the climate emergency. We strive to establish solidarity with low-income and marginalized communities through charitable acts and through educational programs that offer people strategies they can employ for self-reliance, resiliency, and action.
