Texas Climate Emergency Stand UP for your rights
Fossil fuel pollution and climate disasters are already disrupting millions of lives worldwide. From fires to floods, to hurricanes like Harvey and Ida, to the brutal winter storm we experienced last February in Texas, we are living in the midst of a climate emergency. We deserve a world beyond fossil fuels: a world where we can breathe clean air and drink clean water, where workers’ rights, community health, and our shared climate come before corporate profits. That’s why we are uniting to ensure Biden becomes the Climate President he promised to be before he attends the global climate talks this November.
Indigenous leaders, pipeline fighters, water protectors, young people, scientists, faith leaders, and more are saying Enough is Enough: It's time to finally place people’s lives and communities over fossil fuels.
