From our colleagues at Build Back Fossil Free:
“As we dive into 2022 and the climate crisis becomes more dire, the lack of bold action from President Biden to address the climate crisis is completely unacceptable.
The Build Back Fossil Free campaign is organizing a huge letter to Biden for organizations to sign on to, reiterating our demands for bold executive action to keep fossil fuels in the ground and protect communities from the toxic impacts of coal, oil and gas development.
Will you add your organization to this letter to President Biden?
Despite lofty campaign promises, President Biden has failed to tackle the climate crisis with the urgency it demands.
Initial signers include: Action Center on Race and the Economy, Bold Alliance, Carrizo Comecrudo Tribe of Texas, Center for Biological Diversity, Central California Environmental Justice Network, Cheyenne River Grassroots Collective, Earthworks, Food & Water Watch, Friends of the Earth U.S., GreenFaith, Greenpeace USA, Indigenous Environmental Network, Movement Rights, Oil Change International, Port Arthur Community Action Network, Pueblo Action Alliance, Rise St. James, Sierra Club, Sovereign Inupiat For A Living Arctic
We need a powerful, unified response to Biden’s first year in office that makes it clear where we stand and demands that he change course. This letter is one great opportunity to do just that. Will you add your organization?
This is not just another quick sign-on letter. Our goal is to make this as politically powerful as possible, and gather over 1,000 organizations, groups from across the country and of all shapes and sizes. The letter will be released in the lead up to the State of the Union, accompanied by a suite of communications materials to maximize our reach. The deadline for signature before release is Friday, February 18th.
Thanks for considering this, please be in touch if you have any questions!”
