All aboard the Bus to the Clean Energy Revolution!

All aboard the Bus to the Clean Energy Revolution!

Picture this: Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are on their way to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Each of them is leading a delegation of thousands of elected officials, volunteers and delegates. And they’re setting the agenda for our climate and energy economy when they meet.

But before they can get in the door to the convention, they have to pass through a huge march of tens of thousands of fracktivists and climate justice warriors — basically us, and our friends who are telling them to ban fracking, #KeepitintheGround, and finance a just transition to 100 percent clean energy NOW.

We can make that picture a reality, but we only have about two weeks until the March for a Clean Energy Revolution and we all need to act together if we’re going to pull it off.

The two best ways to help are to attend the march yourself (click here to RSVP and find a ride-share) or to sponsor someone’s travel logistics if you can’t make it. If we can raise $2,500 by the end of the week, we can help send hundreds of additional people to the march.

  • Donate $28 to reserve a free bus ticket for one fracktivist who needs help getting to the Revolution;
  • Donate $50 to cover their lodging the night before too, so they can attend PowerShift and/or the Summit for a Clean Energy Revolution;
  • Donate $100 to help cover airfare for leaders from the Dakotas, Wyoming, California and other front-line states who we need in Philadelphia;
  • Chip in $1000 to reserve an entire bus from new York, New Jersey or Maryland.

Are you ready to join the revolution? Click here to chip in whatever you can and let’s make this revolution a reality!

Clean Energy March

The presence of the Convention in Philadelphia is a key opportunity for our movement: Over the past decade, Pennsylvania has been hit harder than almost any state by the impacts of fracking. Pennsylvanians have been sickened by this extreme process, and water, air and land have all been polluted and poisoned.1 Philadelphia itself faces a dire threat from environmental injustice, including a massive oil refinery that many of us showed up to protest during the Break Free actions.2

That’s why hundreds of organizations have endorsed the March for a Clean Energy Revolution.3 But to deliver the change we need, we need everyone to show up and support this ambitious action on the eve of the Democratic National Convention. And that’s where you come in.
