Help Us Make This Year’s Earth Day The Most Productive Ever
As President Biden convenes his historic Climate Summit, help us make sure that he, congress, and the press know that we’re past time for incremental solutions to the Climate Emergency. We must act boldly, and we must act now.
Below are multiple actions you can take all this week to help us enable the kind of change we need.
Wednesday, April 21
Climate Summit Action with #BuildBackFossilFree, 350.org, and Climate Clock –
Today, youth strikers, climate impacted communities, and climate and environmental justice activists are joining together to escalate the demand for President Joe Biden to #BuildBackFossilFree and stop all new fossil fuel projects, ahead of his Leaders Summit on Climate from April 22-23. A Climate Clock will travel from Union Square in New York City to the White House in Washington, D.C. with a petition demanding Biden and world leaders stop all fossil fuel expansion.
Hit social media and call congress and the White House and tell them “the climate crisis is happening now and we have less than seven years to prevent the worst effects of climate change from becoming irreversible. We need a complete transition off of fossil fuels and towards a just, renewable future now. There is no time to waste on climate delay. Biden must stop the fossil fuel projects that are poisoning communities and driving climate chaos, starting with DAPL, Line 3, and defending the Gulf.”

#DefendTheGulf week of action – “The Gulf Coast has been ground zero for much of the fossil fuel industry for a majority of the past century, but too often the region is left out of conversations on Climate. In response to this, organizers and community members from across the Gulf are holding a week of action to lift up our demand that Biden #DefendTheGulf from industrial pollution and the climate crisis.”

US Climate Fair Shares – “As you know, the climate crisis is impacting communities at home and abroad and requires bold, immediate action. With the largest economy in the world and the greatest historical emissions of greenhouse gases, the U.S. must commit to doing its “fair share” of the global effort to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius. This effort must be carried out in a manner that prioritizes the dignity, well-being, and safety of marginalized communities and the most vulnerable in both the U.S. and around the world.”
