TAKE ACTION.

The DNC has no business taking fossil fuel PAC money. Fossil fuel companies spend millions every year to influence our elections and block action on climate change. Tom Perez should follow the lead of more than 1,000 candidates nationwide that have already pledged to reject fossil fuel money and prioritize the health of our communities.

TODAY IS THE DAY! As the Democratic National C…

TODAY IS THE DAY! As the Democratic National Committee (DNC) meets in Chicago today, young people will be there to demand that the DNC restores the ban on fossil fuel corporate PAC contributions! Follow @sunrisemvmt, @climatetruth, and @nofossilmoney today for updates. 

Add your name to the petition.

Tell the DNC: keep fossil fuel money out of our elections:

TAKE ACTION: The DNC just reversed course on banning donations from fossil fuel companies, turning its back on those living with the impacts of climate change and fossil fuel extraction every day — as well as the more than 980 candidates nationwide that our community recruited to sign the No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge.

By ringing the alarm now, we can hold the DNC accountable to its values, and deliver thousands of petitions during the DNC’s Summer Meeting in Chicago this week. Add your name today!

Trump’s Plan for Coal Emissions: Let Coal States Regulate Them:

“The Trump administration next week plans to formally propose a vast overhaul of climate change regulations that would allow individual states to decide how, or even whether, to curb carbon dioxide emissions from coal plants, according to a summary of the plan and details provided by three people who have seen the full proposal.

The plan would also relax pollution rules for power plants that need upgrades. That, combined with allowing states to set their own rules, creates a serious risk that emissions, which had been falling, could start to rise again, according to environmentalists.“

Take Action.
