WHO WE ARE
At the start of 2022, the Chapter has 332 members, 142 of whom are trained Climate Leaders. We anticipate continued growth this year as well as increased diversity in our membership. We come together as activists for camaraderie, mutual support, feedback, continuing education, and fun!
The DFW Chapter vision statement:
We envision a world where climate dialogue is normalized and everyone has equal access to clean water, clean air, nourishing food, clean electricity, and a healthy and just environment. We will work towards creating a larger, more diverse, and sustainable movement in the DFW area that leads to stronger climate activism at all levels, and provides for a just transition to a fossil free future. We recognize that climate change is a threat multiplier and intersects with other areas of injustice, and will work towards creating a more just society for all.
We will be the go-to group in North Texas for solution-driven and evidence-based climate education and collaborations to address the intersection of climate and justice.
We are on a mission to make urgent action on the global climate crisis a reality at every sector of society in North Texas, and to empower North Texans to build a mass movement in support of change.

Indigenous Land Acknowledgement
We, at the Climate Reality Dallas-Fort Worth Chapter, acknowledge the ongoing harm caused by colonialism and white supremacy perpetuated in Texas. Indigenous communities have suffered genocides and forced removals from their lands. We recognize that we all are standing on lands stolen from Indigenous people, particularly those of Kickapoo, Wichita, Tawakoni, Jumanos, and Comanche in the DFW areas. We are committed to cultivating mindfulness around the history of native lands and communities through continuous education, participation, and active listening.
