Rally with Amazonian Leaders to Tell California to Go Fossil Fuel-Free!

California’s oil and gas production is harming communities from the Ecuadorian Amazon to Richmond, California. Gloria and Manari Ushigua, Sápara indigenous leaders, will join Bay Area allies to expose the impacts of the fossil fuel economy on both people and our shared planet.

We will gather outside of the Chevron refinery in Richmond – one of the state’s biggest polluters – to highlight that company’s toxic legacy in Ecuador and its role in causing ongoing destruction from the Amazon to California.

Thursday, May 17th @ 8 am

Get ready for the People’s Climate March! 4/29

Calling on the Resistance….


In the past few weeks, Trump has declared all-out war on our environment, and our democracy. With your help, we’re ready to fight back more than ever. Next up, we’re participating in the People’s Climate March in Washington, DC, on April 29 — which Greenpeace is proud to partner.

Let us know you’re with us! RSVP today.

On April 29th, we will march with our partners, our allies, and our families. We will march for clean air and clean water. We will march for clean energy jobs and climate justice. We will march for our communities and the people we love.

We will march in the spirit of the unprecedented Women’s Marches and other powerful rallies that shook the globe in the hours and days following the inauguration of Donald Trump and the 115th Congress. And we will march to demonstrate our resistance to Trump and Congress’ attacks on our climate, our communities, and our jobs. Commit now to joining us in DC or at one of the other days of action across the country!

I look forward to resisting alongside you in the weeks ahead!

For our climate and communities,

Adrienne Lowry
National Mobilization Organizer, Greenpeace USA
