Climate action just took on a whole new level of urgency.  It's up to us, the people. The future of the planet rests in our hands. Social justice victories from civil rights to women's rights were achieved because powerful mass movements led the way.

The indigenous-led movement to fight the Dakota Access Pipeline is one such movement which is at a critical moment. Please join us on the national day of action to fight this dirty money pipeline on November 15th. Our goal is to have 3,000 people in the streets! Click here to see Bill McKibben talk (at ~24:00in Marin recently about how important the NoDAPL/Standing Rock movement is. 

The events & actions listed below are what's happening right now in the Bay Area to keep us as close as possible to 1.5 degrees Celsius warming:

Oak_NoDaPL.jpgBay Area Stands with Standing Rock: National Day of Action
Tuesday, Nov 15 6:30am-12noon
San Francisco

The timing of the day of action is planned to coincide with a week after the election to send a strong message to both Obama and President-elect Clinton that this is a serious issue. Also Nov 21st is the date of the final US Army Corps of Engineers consultation meeting with tribal leaders. They approved this project without proper consultation and consideration of the environmental damage that could happen. On Nov 15th there are actions happening all over the country & internationally as well. The goal for SF is 3,000 people in attendance with at least 300 doing nonviolent civil disobedience.

Wednesday, Nov 16 9:30am-12:30pm
San Francisco

At a time when we urgently need to stop new fossil fuel infrastructure projects, the biggest industrial polluters in the Bay Area, the oil refineries, are getting permits from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD or Air District) for dirty oil infrastructure projects as if there were no tomorrow. For four years, staff promised and failed to put a cap refinery emissions in it's Rule 12-16 proposal. Now they are refusing to share their legal justifications for opposing caps, and continue to cause delays, while supporting industry arguments. BAAQMD Stationary Source Committee Chair John Goia says that public presence in Board meetings is essential in order to show support for the community's proposal. So please join us at the important meeting.
