Our campaign’s goal is to unite Philadelphians around our Right to Breathe and win political support against toxic fossil fuel projects. We stand for:
Health and Safety Over Profit
Fossil fuels threaten the lives of Philadelphians everyday, causing asthma, cancer, and other health effects among residents, and bringing safety hazards such as explosive oil trains and gas pipelines, disproportionately impacting low-income families and communities of color. We shouldn’t bear this burden while oil and gas companies like the Philadelphia Energy Solutions refinery profit from pollution.
No Fossil Fuel Expansion
Oil and gas companies want continue profiting off our communities, bringing natural gas plants and toxic manufacturing to our city. It has always been wrong to pollute communities and the climate, and we won't take it anymore.
Green Economy for All
We have an opportunity to tackle the twin problems of climate change and inequality. We need a just transition to clean energy and living wage green jobs that provide for everyday Philadelphians. A green economy should heal the climate while reducing poverty, unemployment, and inequality in our city.
