Join us from around California and across the US!
Many of you participated in the Peoples Climate March in New York either marching yourselves or catching the energy of the movement as friends and colleagues converged on New York! On February 7th, thousands of Californians are gathering in Governor Jerry Brown’s longtime home of Oakland to say that we need real climate leadership in the face of the drought.Across California — and beyond — wells are drying up, more than a dozen cities are in real danger of running out of water, and there’s no question it’s being made worse by climate change. But instead of reigning in the oil and gas industry and putting an end to incredibly dangerous and water-intensive practices like fracking, Governor Brown has been letting companies continue with business as usual. You well know this phenomenon is not unique to California and is playing out across the United States, Canada and the world. The Bay Area Rights of Nature Alliance (BARoNA) is an organizing partner. The Global Alliance is proud to announce our participation with BARONA in the March for Real Climate Leadership in Oakland on February 7th. We are inviting Global Alliance members from across North America to join us on the streets of Oakland and/or cheer us on from a far! Join us in Oakland, Governor Brown’s hometown, on February 7th to demand that he be a real climate leader by stopping fracking, standing up to Big Oil, and moving beyond fossil fuels to 100% renewable energy. HERE ARE THE DETAILS:

- Oakland is Governor Brown’s hometown
- When he took office for his 4th and final term, Governor Brown declared he wants California to be an international leader in the fight against climate change .
- But California can’t be a leader in the fight against climate change while we unabashedly push extreme extraction methods like fracking that worsen climate change and seriously endanger the health of our communities. Governor Brown needs to step up to real leadership stopping dangerous oil and fracking activities.
- Californians want to hold him accountable for keeping his promises and providing the REAL leadership California, the USA, and the world need NOW!
