For a cleaner future,
|Environmental Action is on a mission to get America off oil, and on June 30 we’re going to take our fight to the doorsteps of the biggest oil companieson the planet. We’re staging an awesome rally in downtown Houston, the headquarters of Big Oil, and we need your help.We’ve teamed up with the Better Future Project, Texas Sierra Club, 350, the Rainforest Action Network and others to organize this event, and we want it to be big. We want to send Big Oil a strong message that America will no longer subsidize the most profitable and environmentally destructive industry on the planet.
Together with our allies, we’ve collected more than a million signatures asking Congress to end all subsidies and tax breaks for the fossil fuel industry. But we need to make sure that the companies taking our money and messing up our planet get the message too. So we’re staging a bike-powered rally on the streets of Houston to deliver the message on June 30 — and you can be there, no matter where you live, just by signing the petition here.
We’ve taken our message to D.C., to the campaign trail, and to thousands of Americans at their doorsteps. But the executives who run the oil companies destroying our planet are going unchallenged. While we’re fighting with politicians and worrying about whether there will be a planet left for the next generation to live on — they’re sitting in Houston getting rich.
No more. We’re heading into the heart of Big Oil’s home turf and putting them on notice that this is our planet, and we’re ready to take action for it. And we’re doing it in a fun, peaceful way with no oil required to show that real alternatives are possible, if we’re willing to stop investing in pollution and bet on clean energy and healthy communities instead.
If you live in the Houston area and want to join the June 30 rally, you can RSVP for the event here.
But even if you can’t be there in person, we need you to participate. If this event is going to get noticed by Congress and the media we need as many people to sign their support as possible, to show that America is tired of subsidizing one of th e most profitable and environmentally destructive industries on Earth. If you agree that America needs to get off oil and start using clean, green energy sources: Support us by signing the petition, and let America see our strength in numbers.
Thanks for all you do,
Director | Environmental Action
