Ten more cities have signed on to the Chicago Climate Charter, a now 67-city pact to fight climate change in the face of President Trump‘s decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) announced the new signatories, which include Louisville, Ky.; San Jose, Calif.; Saint Paul, Minn.; and Boulder, Colo.

“While the Trump administration continues to bury their heads deeper in the sand when it comes to climate change, local leaders are confronting the challenge head-on,” Emanuel said in a release.
