DEMAND REAL CLIMATE LEADERSHIP ON FEBRUARY 7
The next MAJOR MARCH AND PROTEST: RSVP Below
This is gonna be big!
On February 7th, thousands of Californians from across the state are gathering in Governor Jerry Brown’s longtime home of Oakland to say that we need real climate leadership in the face of the drought.
Across the state wells are drying up, more than a dozen cities are in real danger of running out of water, and there’s no question it’s being made worse by climate change.
But instead of reigning in the oil and gas industry and putting an end to incredibly dangerous and water-intensive practices like fracking, Governor Brown has been letting companies continue with business as usual.
Join people from all corners of California this February in telling Governor Brown that if he won’t be a real climate leader, that if he won’t stand up to the fossil fuel industry, then we will. Because this is about our water, our health, and our California.
HERE ARE THE DETAILS:
WHEN: February 7, 2015
WHERE: Oakland, California – exact location TBA
