Our Demands

The science is clear — we need to stop burning fossil fuels (oil, gas, and coal) and start investing aggressively in a just transition to community-powered, renewable energy.

We can win that change, but we need everyone on board, starting now.

  1. Declaration of a Climate Emergency
    • The Biden Administration must immediately declare a Climate Emergency to constrain the fossil fuel industry and aggressively use the Defense Production Act. Our state and local elected officials must tackle the climate emergency by supporting a transformation of our economy to 100% community-powered, renewable energy, the phasing out of all fossil fuel extraction through a just and equitable transition, and the creation of millions of family-sustaining, union jobs.
  2. No New Fossil Fuel Projects
    • The U.S. cannot fight the climate crisis and continue to dig up and burn fossil fuels at the same time. Scientists are urgently calling for a 50% reduction of fossil fuels within a decade and then a continued reduction to zero emissions by 2050. Doing this requires an immediate halt to all new coal, oil, and gas infrastructure and investments and a full ban on future fossil fuel projects on land or at sea. Not one more permit, pump, or pipeline!
  3. Rapid Phase-Out of Existing Fossil Fuel Projects and Just Transition to a Renewable Energy Economy
    • The U.S. has the resources and the ingenuity to lead the way in a transition which not only addresses the climate crisis but creates more equitable, more prosperous, and more secure communities. As we transition off fossil fuels, we must ensure it is done in a way that centers environment and social justice, and:
      • ensures workers and communities currently dependent on the fossil fuel industry have opportunities to thrive in the renewable energy economy;
      • invests in the prosperity of communities on the frontlines of poverty and pollution;
      • respects Indigenous rights and sovereignty;
      • welcomes those displaced by the cumulative effects of the climate crisis, economic inequality, violence, and lack of opportunity.
