This September, we’re turning up the pressure and putting the spotlight on two executives who need to be doing much, much more to combat the climate crisis.
President Biden, despite promising to end drilling on federal lands, has outpaced Trump with his fossil fuel permit approvals. At home, Governor Newsom claims to be a climate champion – but leaves most of his authority unused when it comes to regulating oil and gas companies.
Next month, the United Nations will be holding a Climate Ambitions Summit in New York to get world leaders to commit to phasing out fossil fuels – and ending leases on public land. This moment of international pressure will be heightened by tens of thousands of activists converging on New York City in a March to End Fossil Fuels.
Here in the Bay Area we’re joining in with our own Action to End Fossil Fuels in Sacramento on September 17. Join for a family-friendly day of action with carnival games, a giant puppet show, performers and speakers, kayaktivism, and a march to the Tower Bridge!
Want to learn more or get plugged in? Tomorrow – Wednesday the 23rd – hop on to the Hype Call happening at 6pm to learn more about the context behind these actions, what we can do here in California, and how this action can push Newsom (and Biden) to take real change. It will also be a great chance to join up and get trained to volunteer on the day!
Plus – Sign up here to get a seat on the bus from the East Bay to go directly to and from the action in Sacramento! Save some emissions and get a chance to meet other awesome activists on the way.
