As Californians, we understand the urgency of climate action. From droughts, fires, oil spills, to deadly air pollution, we’re seeing the impacts of fossil fuels firsthand.
Despite this, California has yet to take the action we know is necessary to stop climate change: commit to a fast and just transition to 100% renewable energy and keep fossil fuels in the ground. We know this is what science and our communities demand, and there’s no time to wait.
That’s why community and movement leaders are coming together for an exciting event on Monday, May 14 in Oakland to discuss how California can be an example for the world and go completely fossil free. Get your ticket today to join this vital conversation.
In our state, we have toxic oil wells in our neighborhoods in LA, fracking wells next to schools in the Central Valley, and ships with dirty tar sands oil coming into the Bay Area – disproportionately affecting low-income communities of color. This isn’t what climate leadership looks like.
Our elected leaders including Governor Brown haven't done nearly enough to protect our communities from the impacts of fossil fuels. It’s time for all of us to rise up and demand true climate action.
The panel event will feature Bill McKibben, Juan Flores, Pennie Opal Plant, Kathryn Lybarger and Antonia Juhasz -- leaders who can help light the path forward for California to be a real climate leader.
Knowing what we need to do is half the battle – next we’ll need to take these demands to the streets and into city halls and statehouses across the state and country.
As Governor Jerry Brown hosts the Global Climate Action Summit this September in San Francisco, we must be be clear about what real climate leadership looks like, and how California can lead the way on building a 100% renewable energy economy based on equity and justice.
