Climate and Energy Webinar TONIGHT, April 5th
Tell Your Representative to get us Off Fossil Fuels

Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) was founded in 2004 to make progress on critical issues including stopping climate change. We recognize the imperative, intersectional, and interdependent nature of climate justice. See our “Windmills not Weapons” campaign, for example. Please support PDA’s Action On Climate.

We work closely with our sister organization People Demanding Action and our allies like Food and Water Watch organizing support for the best practices to stop climate change, such as Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s Off Fossil Fuels (OFF) Act. We set up an easy-to-use tool to help you contact your own Representative and ask her or him to cosponsor the OFF Act. We also oppose counterproductive policies such as carbon taxes, cap and trade, etc. Find out more about progressive climate and energy policies:

People Demanding Action asked us to share this message with you:

Over the past few years there has been a growing faction within the climate movement advocating for putting a price on carbon to reduce emissions. Not only do these policies not work in the real world, but they can have devastating consequences for fossil fuel-impacted communities.

For this reason, we are pleased to announce the third webinar in our climate and energy series entitled The Price is Wrong: Why Carbon Pricing Won’t Solve the Climate Crisis.

Food & Water Action will be joined by speakers from Friends of the Earth, the Indigenous Environmental Network, and People Demanding Action to offer a critique of carbon pricing models like cap-and-trade and a carbon-tax.

We will make the case for why we need to oppose efforts to put a price on carbon as a climate solution and instead advocate for a rapid, just, and equitable transition to 100% clean renewable energy, such as with the OFF Act.

Join the climate and energy Webinar this evening, Thursday, April 5th with speakers:

  • Scott Edwards, Co-Director of Climate & Energy Program of Food & Water Watch
  • Tamra Gilbertson from Indigenous Environmental Network
  • Gary Hughes, Senior California Advocacy Campaigner, Friends of the Earth
  • Andrea Miller, Executive Director, People Demanding Action

Join the Webinar this evening, Thursday, April 5th
Time: 5pm PT / 6pm MT / 7pm CT / 8pm ET
