Climate change is all over the news, and the GOP is back to lying and denying while the world burns. Democrats must prove they have a real plan to address climate devastation – and that starts with rejecting fossil fuel industry money.
Bold new leaders like Rep.-Elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have taken Congress by storm with their powerful vision of a Green New Deal, while our partners at the Sunrise Movement and others have kept the pressure up demanding a set of solutions equal to the dire problems we’re facing.
Now’s the time to demand that the Democrats’ incoming leadership take the No Fossil Fuel Money pledge to show they’re willing to tackle the climate crisis with the seriousness it demands.
Right now, 35 members of the new Congress have already taken the pledge to reject donations from Big Oil, Gas, and Coal. But so far, Rep. Barbara Lee is the only candidate for Democratic House leadership who’s committed to fully rejecting the influence of the fossil fuel industry. Write a letter today urging the Dems' new leadership to take the No Fossil Fuel Money pledge and prove they’re serious about tackling climate change.
