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 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.
