“We want all Arkansans to benefit from the green energy transition.”

The Arkansas Climate League encourages environmental justice, energy security, and green energy conversations in low-income communities. We connect with grassroots leaders, listen, build relationships, provide information about local energy assistance and energy efficiency programs to low and middle income families, and work with other nonprofits to pursue local clean energy initiatives.

Our current grassroots focus is in Fort Smith. We have a resource office in the Elizabeth McGill Drop-In Center which is staffed part-time by the Climate League’s Outreach Leader. We have benefitted from the expertise of Crawford Sebastian County Development Council staff and other area agencies/organizations. The Arkansas Climate League is an active member of the River Valley Nonprofit consortium.

In addition, the Arkansas Climate League participates in the River Valley Green Energy and Education Program (RV-GEEP), in association with the University of Arkansas Fort Smith. We also engage in statewide collaborations: working with Arkansas environmental groups to deliver an Annual Arkansas Environmental Policy Summit and taking part in the Arkansas Citizens’ First Congress coalition.

We strive to deepen our understanding and implementation of the  Jemez Principles for Democratic Organizing
