Why is ExxonMobil Still Funding Climate Science Denier Groups?:

“A decade after pledging to end its support for climate science deniers, ExxonMobil gave $1.5 million last year to 11 think tanks and lobby groups that reject established climate science and openly oppose the oil and gas giant’s professed climate policy preferences, according to the company’s annual charitable giving report released this week.“

The DNC Just Lifted Their Ban on Fossil Fuel Contributions. Who Will Say No to the Tide of “Dark Oily” Money?:

“Democrats hoping to win back the House and contend in 2020 need to inspire higher millennial voter turnout. 

Since eighty percent of young people want to transition America to clean energy by 2030, pledging #NoFossilFuelMoney is a good place to start. We are asking you to stand up to the DNC’s decision to realign themselves with fossil fuel industry lobbyists. Protect the health of our homes, our families, and our democracy.”

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 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.

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!
