• End Fossil Fuel Ads on Social Media
    Advertisements from Big Oil are polluting the public debate on climate change, and obstructing the ability of governments to take necessary steps to stop deadly emissions and pollution. Companies like Facebook, Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, and TikTok are now some of the biggest online platforms for public debate that we have - and for fossil fuel polluters to greenwash their reputations and obstruct climate action. Responsible companies should not be profiting off of climate disinformation. Social media companies have already banned tobacco advertisements because of the damage they do to public health, and now Big Oil is using the same tactics as Big Tobacco to mislead the public. Emissions from fossil fuels and the subsequent pollution and climate damage are the leading cause of preventable deaths worldwide. Fossil fuel companies are using their ad campaigns to influence the debate around and block climate action. If you agree that it’s time for big tech companies to ban fossil fuel advertisements, add your name to our petition now.

  • Tell Congress: Denounce Amazon’s plan to build a South African HQ on sacred indigenous land!
    Amazon wants to build a new HQ in South Africa by bulldozing over sacred indigenous land.1 And just like when Amazon tried to build a new HQ in New York City, local activists in Cape Town are pushing back. Amazon didn't choose a sacred indigenous site by accident. They know it has historical, cultural and environmental significance.2 They just want to destroy and build on it anyway. But since Amazon is a US company, they're particularly vulnerable to grassroots pressure here in the US. You can show your solidarity with indigenous activists in South Africa by calling on your member of Congress to denounce this new Amazon headquarters. Sign the petition: Tell Congress to denounce Amazon's plan to build a HQ on sacred indigenous land in South Africa! The indigenous land sits on the banks of the Liesbeek River where in the year 1510 Khoi peoples successfully fought back Portuguese intruders. The area is still a source of pride and cultural heritage for the Khoi, which also survived decades of oppression under Apartheid. But now Amazon wants to bulldoze it and build a sprawling campus. Over 50,000 residents in Cape Town signed a petition opposing the construction, but Amazon is pushing ahead anyway. That's why folks on the ground there are asking for your help! If US elected officials publicly denounce this HQ project, Amazon will face an international political and PR nightmare. Activists here in the US successfully blocked an Amazon HQ in New York City. Together you can show solidarity with indigenous activists and help block this new Amazon HQ in South Africa. Sign the petition: Tell Congress to denounce Amazon's plan to build a HQ on sacred indigenous land in South Africa! Sources: 1. Reuters, "Heritage dispute engulfs site chosen for Amazon's new African HQ," June 3, 2021. 2. Africa News, "Controversy over the location of Amazon African headquarters in Cape Town," May 14, 2021.

  • PA DEP, We Deserve to Know the Full Story on PFAS and Fracking
    In revealing that PFAS chemicals have been used in fracking here in PA, the Editorial Board of the Philadelphia Inquirer has done the work your state regulators have failed to do. This failure comes on the heels of so many others that a Grand Jury convened to look at the industry couldn't help but report a year ago on how badly our regulators have failed us. The Editorial Board describes DEP's attitude as "willful ignorance." That's putting it mildly. Time for an attitude adjustment at DEP for the good of all Pennsylvanians.

  • Jamaica Qns residents fight CM Miller for clean environment & NO waste increase. Kill Int 2349-A
    Our fight for a clean environment and clean air, must be heard. Pollutants from the local waste transfer stations on Douglas Ave. have caused asthma, cancer, and other health ailments in our community, and enough is enough. We have been neglected too many years by our elected officials in exchange for them getting funding from these waste stations in Jamaica, Queens. Waste stations “fund our NYC parks” and “help the community” while they get passes to pollute our community. We must fight against this environmental racism.

  • Restore Press Freedom!
    Today the entire mainstream media is owned by only FIVE corporations, all of which are run by people who are invested in weapons and war. The result is a media that always starts with a pro-interventionist position and is staffed by former intelligence officials and generals that protect the government narrative instead of the truth. Additionally, it is extremely rare for mainstream media outlets to have on opposing viewpoints, especially from the left, to have debates and discussions. We need a return to fairness, truth and civil debate.

  • Tell Mayor Ginther: Cancel the dangerous North Broadway crossing for the Olentangy Trail
    The City is planning to spend millions of dollars on an unnecessary bridge and trail segment ... that will take pedestrian and bicycle traffic directly to a highway off-ramp. There are far better and more cost-effective ways to improve trail safety on Milton from Kenworth over to Delhi! If built, this ill-advised crossing will be a permanent feature of our city infrastructure for DECADES. Let's demand that the City of Columbus do better.

  • CLEAN UP BLACK LAKE
    Black Lake's Kenneydell Beach has already experienced a temporary closure due to levels of fecal coliform bacteria 5x above safe levels. The County has been aware that stormwater runoff and failing septics have been degrading the water in the Lake for years, but still has done nothing to address these root causes. The County does not test beyond Kenneydell Beach and there has never been an environmental review of the entire Lake ecosystem which connects to the strategic groundwater reservation, Puget Sound and the Black River. If you're concerned about the deterioration of our water resources and natural areas, please urge the County Commissioners to take charge and take action.
