On this National Climate Strike Day: Demand President Biden and your governor declare a climate emergency!
Now is a critical moment to sound the alarm on climate change and demand that President Biden and our governors declare official climate emergencies. That's why on Thursday, September 1st at 7:30pm ET / 4:30pm PT, we're hosting ACE's Climate Strike National Call.
With the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) being signed into law, our country is now on a path toward reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by the end of the decade. But that is NOT ENOUGH. The IRA will also open up millions of acres of public land and water to potential drilling for oil and gas. Even worse, House and Senate leaders have made a sweetheart side deal to bring a vote on a separate bill to smooth the pathway for construction of the Mountain Valley Pipeline—a fracked gas pipeline that would cross hundreds of streams and wetlands, some on Indigenous land.
We must continue our fight to ensure that the next bill actually includes those who will be most impacted —including young people from all backgrounds who will be disproportionately impacted by fossil fuel development and climate destruction. Join us Thursday, September 1st at 7:30pm ET / 4:30 pm PT, for ACE's Climate Strike National Call. We will take collective national action to DEMAND President Biden and your governor declare a climate emergency now!
Join the call to get inspired, excited, and connected with the youth climate movement. Hear from young people who are already taking action, and learn how you can join them, right in your hometown.
