Hours after President Trump announced the US withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement, a group of 61 mayors committed their cities to “adopt, honor, and uphold the commitments to the goals enshrined in the Paris Agreement.” That number continued to rise and now includes hundreds of cities. The We Are Still In group also includes commitments from hundreds of businesses, individuals, and colleges and universities.
In a similar vein, more than a dozen states joined together in the US Climate Alliance, “a coalition that will convene U.S. states committed to upholding the Paris Climate Agreement and taking aggressive action on climate change.” They join states in the Under2MOU agreement and states that have – via legislation or executive order – already committed to emissions reductions in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Cities and states are natural leaders when it comes to addressing climate change. For them, the transition to a low-carbon economy pays off not only in terms of protection from future climate change but also in terms of health, economic opportunity, and equity. When communities work thoughtfully to reduce emissions, they engage in multisolving, becoming better versions of themselves by making improvements in multiple areas with a single investment. Read our article about these opportunities.

Our tracking method and assumptions:
- Cities (red dots): We are showing the cities and towns who have joined the Climate Mayors or We Are Still In.
- Counties (pink dots): We are showing the counties who have joined We Are Still In.
- Colleges and Universities (blue dots): We are showing those who have signed on with We Are Still In and those who signed the letter as part of the Ivy Plus group.
- Tribes (yellow dots): We are relying on this news report.
- States: We are including states that are part of either the Under2 MOU or the US Climate Alliance (red shading). We have also included states that have official greenhouse gas reduction targets that are at least 85% as strong as the US pledge (orange shading). Our data on state goals comes from a list maintained by C2ES.
