Big Oil Resistance Tour: VENTURA

Start: Saturday, April 29, 2023 1:00 PM

End: Saturday, April 29, 2023 2:30 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 taking the playbook they perfected right here in Ventura statewide.

It’s time for the Big Oil Resistance 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 act, 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), Kern County (May 7), Oakland (May 12), and Sacramento (May 13)!

Our Ventura event will feature…

  • Community leaders Nalleli Cobo (People Not Pozos), Haley Ehlers (CFROG), Tomás Rebecchi (FWW) and Cesar Aguirre (CCEJN) from the frontlines of oil and gas extraction

  • Urgent local organizing opportunities

  • And stick around after the event for beer and live music at Topa Topa!

Doors open at 12pm, and the event will run from 1pm-2:30pm.

Join us for a dynamic event at Topa Topa in Ventura 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.
