The oil and gas industry is aggressively expanding -- promoting pipelines, oil trains, LNG export facilities, fracked gas power plants and more to support the continued expansion and export of these dirty fossil fuels. This infrastructure boom threatens to lock in fossil fuel production for decades to come - impacting frontline communities, threatening the global climate and harming people’s air, water, and health. But across North America, people are rising up to challenge the oil and gas infrastructure boom, fighting instead for a clean energy future.

Join us at the People vs. Oil & Gas Infrastructure, A Summit for Communities fighting back from Nov. 17-20 in Pittsburgh, PA for the largest gathering to date of groups fighting new fossil fuel infrastructure.

This summit is for any grassroots or frontline activists ready to do more. The program will include key panel discussions, trainings and collective strategy building. The local Pittsburgh community will also open the summit with a big welcome and close the last day by leading us into the streets for a fun, cooperative action.

The training tracks will be split into four informative and fun tracks: Advocacy and technical legal skills; political campaigning; action/arts workshopping; and organizing/recruitment training.
