People vs Fossil Fuels

October 11, 8:00 am - October 15, 5:00 pm EDT

Join us in Washington D.C. to demand a future free from fossil fuels.

Communities from all across America struggling against pollution, fracking, pipelines, refineries and other fossil fuel projects will join together on October 11-15 for a historic protest in Washington D.C. demanding meaningful action to end the era of fossil fuels.

Over the course of the week, we will engage in sustained nonviolent civil disobedience to force decisionmakers to respond to our demands. Will politicians like President Biden continue to distract and delay and lock us into a century of climate catastrophe? Or will we rapidly shift away from dangerous fossil fuels, avoid the worst impacts of climate change, and create a healthy and just economy that works for everyone?

The era of fossil fuels must end. The fate of our planet and future generations depend on the actions we take now.

Join us in a massive wave of civil disobedience from October 11-15 to demand an end to fossil fuels.

Sign up today.
