Dear Friends,

This October 11-15, thousands of people will come to DC to demand that President Biden hasten the end of the fossil fuel era. He must stop approving fossil fuel projects and declare a climate emergency right now, ahead of the United Nations climate summit in November. We are collaborating with People vs. Fossil Fuels (see below) to take action over five days to highlight the damage done by fossil fuels, the climate impacts we are already facing, and the need for real solutions rooted in justice.

If you're planning to attend, please let us know. We will help you stay connected with other Friends who are attending and send you updates.

Indigenous people, pipeline fighters, water protectors, young people, scientists, faith leaders, and more are saying enough is enough: it's time to finally place people and all living beings over fossil fuels.

Thank you,

Shelley Tanenbaum
