WHAT WE DO
At The Climate Reality Project, we believe it’s time for a new kind of climate movement.
It’s time to listen to the expertise of frontline voices, Indigenous peoples, and activists of color fighting pollution and climate change in their communities and learn from their leadership. It’s time to hear the young activists calling for intergenerational justice.
Most of all, it’s time to fight for equity. To fight for a world where we all breathe clean air and drink safe water. To fight for a future where people of color and poor families no longer suffer the worst of climate change while the wealthy look away. To fight for good jobs and real opportunities for all. No matter what we look like or where we come from.
We’re working to build this movement by focusing on five key areas:
Driving High-Level Policy Change:
Our Climate Moment™ brings together activists across the US to push Congress to embrace bold policies that clean up the pollution hotspots killing families of color and accelerate a just transition to clean energy that creates good jobs and opportunity everywhere from our big cities to rural communities.
Training Leaders and Empowering Activists
Since 2006, the Climate Reality Leadership Corps has recruited and trained over 31,000 world-changers of all ages, backgrounds and walks of life all across the planet. The program gives people ready to lead the fight for just climate solutions the understanding of climate science, organizing skills, and global network to inspire and mobilize their communities for action at critical moments.
Alongside the Climate Reality Leadership Corps, our Climate Speakers Network trains community leaders to be powerful climate messengers inspiring people of faith and frontline communities to act now.
Climate Justice Grants:
We support grassroots partners across the US fighting for environmental justice by cleaning up pollution hotspots, ensuring access to quality nutrition, and expanding clean energy in low-income communities, to name only a few areas. Apply for support today.
Elevating Voices of Color:
We work to amplify voices of color and build a more diverse and inclusive movement that draws on their leadership, innovations, and expertise and fights for equity.
Our 11 international branches and partnerships – in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Europe, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico and Latin America, the Philippines, and South Africa – organize activists to raise awareness of climate injustice and fight for the solutions that can make a difference in their country or region.
