While much of the economy has ground to a halt and millions of people shelter in place, energy companies around the world are moving ahead with their destructive dirty energy projects. Worse, in some areas, workers housed in labor camps during the COVID-19 pandemic are creating an unnecessary and easily avoidable public health risk for the communities that are already suffering from the environmental consequences of extreme energy extraction. While front-line communities aren’t able to make it to DC in person to confront the institutions that are facilitating this, that doesn’t mean we can’t bring their voices to those decision makers.
We’ll pull a portable PA system on a bike cart as we ride from office to office, visiting institutions like the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the American Petroleum Institute and the EPA. Those who can’t join us in person can join us live on Zoom, and at each stop we’ll project the voices of front-line organizers across the internet and in person.
We're starting at 12 noon!
We're making plans to allow as many people who want to participate while maintaining safe physical distancing. Fill out the form and we'll follow up with you about meet up locations and logistics.
