Our water, public health and safety are under attack by the unchecked greed of the fossil fuel industry. We must build a movement to stop them.
On top of all that, corporate interests are aggressively working to take over critical public services and essential resources like clean affordable drinking water, while multilateral trade agreements threaten public health and worker rights.
That's what we're up against. But these are the kinds of fights we know how to win, and with your help we can do just that.
We have successfully passed bans on fracking waste dumping in dozens of municipalities and counties. We are resisting oil and gas pipelines where and when they are proposed. And we have defeated water privatization schemes throughout the state. Our work is part of a broader movement to get money out of politics, and build a real democracy that represents all people.
This isn't just about winning campaigns to stop dirty energy. We are catalyzing a just transition to a clean, renewable energy economy, one that provides good paying jobs and lasting economic development in our communities. We have an opportunity to turn the political tides and reclaim our right to a healthy, just and prosperous future. Join us!
