With our federal government seemingly bent on cooking the planet for the sake of corporate profits, we have no choice but to take up the mantle ourselves:  as individuals, organizations, businesses, and local and state governments. It’s on us!

On January 31, we worked with 350.org to kick off a major campaign for 2018…

Fossil Free Fast: The Climate Resistance launched its Fossil Free U.S campaign, calling for an immediate halt to all fossil fuel projects with a fast and just transition to 100% renewable energy for all. OCA and other local groups hosted local kickoff watch parties in Port Angeles, Sequim, and Port Townsend, watching Bernie Sanders, Bill McKibben, and other forward-thinking activists speak about a vision for a healthy planet with justice for all, inspiring strong unified resistance against the current federal Administration’s endless attacks on the environment.

To connect with other local activists equally passionate about the work ahead to end oil addiction and transition the world to 100% renewable energy, contact us, and we’ll work together to help solve the biggest challenge humanity has ever faced.
