Oil Money Out
Saturday | May 20, 2017 | 12:00 pm — 3:00 pm
Governor’s Mansion | 16th and H Streets, Sacramento, CA
The only way to disrupt the oil industry’s political influence is with people power. Join us in Sacramento for a march and rally and send a clear message to our elected officials to swear off dirty oil money!
Last year, in lobbying alone, the oil industry spent $36 million to push our elected officials to do their bidding. Over the past ten years, that number amounts to $266 million. Unsurprisingly, during this time there has been little to no headway in reining in the most toxic or damaging practices of the oil industry here in California. This, despite the fact that our state scientists have found that many of these practices are demonstrably toxic and have laid out clear protections for public health. This obscene spending has allowed the industry to prevent the passing of meaningful legislation that would limit their ability to drill and pollute.Visit Event Website >>
