Big Oil Resistance Tour, in LA with Jane Fonda
Start: Friday, April 28, 2023• 7:00 PM
End: Friday, April 28, 2023• 9:00 PM
Big Oil bullies are ripping off Californians, polluting our air and water, poisoning our communities, and setting us on a path toward climate destruction.
Oil and gas companies just spent over $20 million to put a lifesaving environmental justice law on hold. They’re suing to stop our trailblazing measures to phase out fossil fuel extraction here in LA.
Join the Big Oil Resistance –and our special guest, Jane Fonda– to fight back. Get your tickets today!
Governor Newsom is talking tough on Big Oil and trying to stop them from fleecing us at the gas pump. But, we need him to truly move California beyond fossil fuels once and for all - by ending neighborhood drilling and halting all new fossil fuel permits.
To get the Governor to action, we need to build our movement's power.
That's why the Last Chance Alliance - representing 900+ community, environmental, and public health organizations worldwide – is hitting the road for a 7-stop statewide tour through...Los Angeles (Apr 28), Ventura (Apr 29), Santa Barbara (Apr 30), San Diego (May 6), Bakersfield (May 7), Oakland (May 12), and Sacramento (May 13)!
Our LA event will feature…
Special guest, actor and activist, Jane Fonda (Fire Drill Fridays)!
Community leaders Ruth Andrade (SCOPE), Tianna Shaw-Wakeman (Black Women for Wellness), Nalleli Cobo (Goldman Prize Winner - People Not Pozos) and Cesar Aguirre (Central CA Env Justice Network) from the frontlines of oil and gas extraction
Environmental justice champion, Asm. Isaac Bryan (AD 55)
Supervisor Holly Mitchell and Frm. Culver City Mayor Daniel Lee, two local elected officials who've lead the way on phasing out neighborhood oil drilling
Minister of Community Outreach at Holman Church, Rev. Louis A. Chase
Music by the author, poet, and emcee, Jessa Calderon
And urgent local organizing opportunities!
Doors open at 6 pm, and the event will run from 7 pm-9 pm.
Join us for a dynamic evening in LA to learn what Governor Newsom must do next to protect our communities and our climate, and to join the broad-based movement that we’re building to demand action.
