Following New York's historic ban on fracking last month, we must show that our movement is stronger than ever here in California — that we know the health and safety of California's communities is more important than oil company profits and we expect leaders like Governor Jerry Brown to act.
In Governor Jerry Brown’s inaugural speech on January 5th, he took a huge step in the right direction by setting a goal for California to be powered by 50% renewable energy within 15 years.
Unfortunately, he ignored the reality that California can't be a leader in the fight against climate change while we unabashedly push extreme extraction methods like fracking that worsen climate change and seriously endanger the health of our communities. Because even if we don't burn the oil in California, as long as it's being extracted here, it's still poisoning our water and endangering our communities.
Join us in one month at the March for Real Climate Leadership to tell Governor Brown that real climate leaders don’t frack.
Here are the details:
WHAT: The March for Real Climate Leadership: Our Water, Our Health, Our California
