We Demand Justice for the People & the Planet

For over 20 years we have been pushing for real action, and global leaders have been promising a new climate agreement through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference Of Parties (COP) meetings. This December at the COP21 in Paris, a global climate agreement is anticipated that falls far short of the actions needed to avoid global climate catastrophes.  Inadequate action and false solutions will result in extreme consequences for the planet that will have notably disproportionate impact on the peoples of the Global South, as well as working class communities, communities of color, and indigenous and marginalized peoples living on the frontlines of the escalating climate crisis.

I join with Grassroots Global Justice Alliance and the It Takes Roots to Weather the Storm Delegation, and call on President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, and US lead negotiator Todd Stern to make binding commitments in response to both science and the demands of frontline communities to:

  1. Establish mandatory--not voluntary--emissions cuts at the source
  2. Leave fossil fuels in the ground
  3. Reject Fracking, Nuclear Power, Carbon Markets, and other dangerous technologies and false solutions
  4. Strengthen the inclusion of human rights and particularly the rights of Indigenous Peoples
  5. Support Community-Rooted Solutions; including regional and local economic structures that support the production of renewable energy

Sign the petition below to send an email to President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, and the US Lead Negotiator Todd Stern, calling for their action in support of our full demands.
