For me, this provides the starting point for creating meaningful climate change solutions in the communities I serve."

    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 Americans of all backgrounds and walks of life to push for practical clean energy solutions in their communities and fight the fossil fuel agenda on the national stage.

    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 carbon pricing policies, to name just a few of the many campaigns already underway.

    The only pre-requisite to joining a chapter is the desire to make a difference. And with over 80 chapters and growing in cities, towns, and campuses across the US, there are many ways to get involved with other activists in your community.

    Why Join?

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

    • Connect with a local network of engaged 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 a critical time in the fight for climate solutions.
