Fire Drill Fridays Discusses the Oil and Gas Crisis in Texas and Louisiana
In the spring of 2023, Fire Drill Fridays is headed to the frontlines of the climate crisis — starting in the Permian Basin and Gulf Coast, home to the biggest climate bomb in the United States.
Actor and Activist, Jane Fonda, gives details about her upcoming trip to Louisiana and Texas, speaks with key leaders from the region — Labor Organizer and Author, Saket Soni, and Earthworks Texas Lead Organizer, Miguel Escoto, and shares how everyone can follow along and take action along the way.
Miguel Escoto is the Texas Lead Organizer with Earthworks, documenting pollution, conducting fieldwork, and organizing at the West Texas oil fields. He also volunteers with Sunrise El Paso, a group of young people running an initiative to transition away from fossil fuels.
Saket is labor organizer and the author of The Great Escape: A True Story of Forced Labor and Immigrant Dreams in America. He is the founder and director of Resilience Force, a national nonprofit that advocates for the rising workforce that rebuilds after climate disasters.
