USA — Next week, half-way through Biden’s first 100 days, the #BuildBackFossilFree coalition is hosting a week of action across the country to escalate the demand for President Joe Biden to be a real Climate President by stopping all new fossil fuel projects.
WHAT: Build Back Fossil Free week of action
WHEN: Next week, Thursday, April 1 – Friday, April 9, 2021
WHERE: All across the U.S. Event map here.
WHO: Led by the Build Back Fossil Free coalition, tens of thousands of people across the country will take COVID-safe and/or virtual actions.
WHY: On Day One, Biden kept his promise and rejected Keystone XL after a decade-long Indigenous-led fight. Now he must use his executive powers to immediately stop the Line 3 and Dakota Access pipelines, stop all fossil fuel projects, and protect our communities.
Ahead of the April 22 Global Climate Summit, we’re sending a clear message: Biden must confront environmental racism and fossil fuel companies fueling the climate crisis.
As we continue to rebuild and recover from the compound crises of COVID-19, racial and economic injustice, and climate disasters, it’s not enough to Build Back Better — we need a Just Recovery to Build Back Fossil Free.
