From May 4 - May 15 350.org is organizing a global wave of resistance to show the widespread support to transition off fossil fuels and build a new kind of economy we know is possible – one centered on a just transition to 100% renewable energy now. 

The global event nearest to us will be in Los Angeles on May 14, close enough for us to attend!

Many people look to California to inspire what it means to take climate change seriously. We are leading the way but we know we need to move with more urgency to match the level of crisis we are approaching. With cities running out of water, sea levels rising, and our health being compromised -- half measures will not do. We need bold action to break free from fossil fuels.

Our climate is at a tipping point – and right now California is the third largest oil producing state in the U.S.Our Governor might take measures to increase fuel efficiency in our cars, but we need to stop it at the source. We need to break our addiction to fossil fuels.

Join the March to Break Free from Fossil Fuels on May 14 in Los Angeles.

Where: Downtown Los Angeles

Sign up: Add your name here and 350.org will be in touch with more details!

This march is the first of its kind – not only are we uniting as Californians to demand change at home, but also as part of a massive global movement and week of action to end the age of fossil fuels.

California is on the frontlines of the climate crisis and is devastated by the impacts of extraction everyday. More than 5 million Californians live within a mile of a fossil fuel extraction site and nearly 13,000 people have completely run out of water during this drought.2

We’ve already exposed the failed leadership of our elected officials to protect our citizens and put pressure on everyone from Governor Brown to city council members who are not moving quickly enough to ban dangerous drilling. The March to Break Free will be another step to show our collective force to keep fossil fuels in the ground and protect our communities.

350.org will be providing buses and organizing ride shares to bring people from across the state to the March. Sign up for info about the action route, art builds, volunteering, and more.

This is our chance to stand together and show that our health, our communities, and our climate are more important than the profits of a shameful industry.

We look forward to seeing you there!
