Corporate polluters receive $15 billion+ in direct federal subsidies each year so they can continue to poison our communities and threaten the future of people and planet. Our taxpayer dollars are funding the climate crisis and allowing fossil fuel billionaires to line their pockets. This must end, and we have an historic opportunity right now for Congress to do it.

Join U.S. Representatives Andy Levin and Ro Khanna, College Dems Environmental Caucus Chair Paul Presendieu and DNC Climate Council Chair Michelle Deatrick for this important and exciting virtual event: Why and Why Now: Ending Fossil Fuel Handouts at 6:00 PM ET, Sunday, June 27th.

We'll talk about the long legacy of harm from funding corporate polluters and why this moment presents an opportunity to turn the tide on the climate crisis and the handouts that fossil fuel companies receive every year.

Hosted by the DNC Environment and Climate Crisis Council, with co-hosts College Democrats of America and the Environmental Caucuses of the Young Democrats and College Democrats, Friends of the Earth Action, Our Revolution and More.

This event kicks off a Week of Action to End Fossil Fuel Handouts with allies like Oil Change USA, Our Revolution, Food and Water Watch, Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, NRDC, 350 Action, Oxfam, and more to end polluter welfare.
