Join us for a press conference and petition delivery immediately following Governor Brown's State-Of-The-State Address. We’re coming together to call on the Governor and our elected officials to get oil money out of California politics! Activists, community members, health professionals and other experts will gather at the state capital to send a clear message to our California lawmakers, demanding they listen to state scientists who have determined that fracking and neighborhood drilling are dangerous for California.
We will then deliver our Oil Money Out petition with more than 75,000 signatures (we're still counting) to Governor Brown. We are calling on the Governor to take bold action during his final year in office to solidify his legacy as a climate leader. Please join us this Thursday!
When: Thursday, January 25th @ Noon
Where: North Steps of State Capitol Building, 1100 L St., Sacramento, CA 95814
Accessibility: The press conference will take place on the north steps of the Capitol where we will be spread across the steps. Participants will stand for roughly 15 minutes during the conference on concrete. ADA parking spaces are available in a parking garage on 10th and L less than one block from the capitol building. The nearest light rail station is one block away on O and 11th and multiple bus lines stop in front of the capitol. If you have accessibility needs you’d like to discuss, please email Damien Luzzo at firstname.lastname@example.org
Why this is important: During the last legislative session, Big Oil spent an historic $36.1 million to lobby California lawmakers - more than any other industry. Efforts to protect the environment have been thwarted because of the financial power of oil money and Californians are fed up with pay-to-play politics. It’s time for our elected officials to put public health first and prioritize people over profits. #OilMoneyOut #PeoplePowerIn
