The problem with plastic goes even deeper than pollution clogging up our oceans and waterways. The upstream impacts of plastic production are sickening frontline communities that have faced environmental racism for decades, if not centuries. These petrochemical facilities are also further exacerbating the climate crisis, obstructing any potential to meet the Paris Agreement goals and any initiatives to mitigate global temperature and sea level rise.
We need to stop petrochemical expansion NOW.
The Break Free From Plastic (BFFP) movement is hosting a national event on Tuesday, October 26th to demonstrate the urgent need to address the crisis of environmental racism, the destruction of natural resources, and the climate crisis.
Frontline groups and allied organizations around the country will be rising up on October 26h and sharing their actions live on a webinar. Join us virtually or in-person to learn directly from those living next to massive petrochemical facilities, pipelines, and extraction sites.
We welcome members of the Biden administration and BFFP members to join us on Zoom to listen and learn what’s really happening in sacrifice zones from Louisiana, Appalachia, and beyond.
Tune in on October 26th at 1pm ET, and sign the petition asking President Biden to immediately halt approvals for new and expanded fossil-fueled petrochemical projects including cracker plants and create a pathway for fenceline communities to participate in reforming existing emission regulations for existing infrastructure with a standard of safety.
