Policy and civic engagement is key to achieving climate justice. Policy developed and implemented by legislators has real and tangible impacts on our communities every day.

We need representatives from our communities, and legislators that represent our interests. We must continue pushing for climate justice by demanding policy that serves our needs and interests, and by building community power to elect climate champions.

Summer Escalation Arc – It’s time to #EndTheEra of Fossil Fuels

FFF US is proud to be a core organizing group of the #EndTheEra escalation arc demanding climate justice this June through September. Thousands of groups across the U.S. are calling on President Biden to be the climate leader that he claims to be abroad at home.

Summer Escalation Arc June 8 – 11 National Week of Action

June 8 – 11 is a week of distributed actions across the United States. 1,200+ groups are lifting up their local fights against oil and gas developments, to make it clear that siding with Big Oil is a political liability. We call on President Biden to use his power and legal authority to stop approving new fossil fuel projects. We, the people who got him elected, demand better.

Debt Ceiling: The Biden-Manchin Dirty Deal

The Mountain Valley Pipeline has 139 construction permit violations and 46 water quality violations. Biden’s Dirty Deal will fast-track MVP — while blocking federal courts and agencies from holding it to environmental standards. This means that the pipeline, having demonstrated significant threat and operating issues, will be fully developed and shielded from environmental enforcement. Biden and Democratic leadership have allowed the debt ceiling to become a fossil fuel handout.

Manchin side deal

Manchin API Permitting Side Deal

Within the deal to pass the Inflation Reduction Act, the largest climate investment in the history of the United States, are massive fossil fuel handouts. Sen. Chuck Schumer and Sen. Joe Manchin are trying to attach separate legislation (Manchin’s fossil fuel wish list) that fast tracks fossil fuel permit approval and harms community and regulatory efforts. We cannot lock in more fossil fuel development, and we cannot call a fossil fuel bill a climate win.

Inflation Reduction Act of 2022

The Inflation Reduction Act is hailed as a landmark accomplishment of the Biden Administration and the largest legislative climate investment in U.S. history. While the IRA pushes for increased renewable production and investment, it is tied to dangerous and irresponsible continued fossil fuel extraction that will harm frontline communities already bearing the brunt of the climate crisis. We demand no more fossil fuels, and climate legislation for the earth, not industry.

West Virginia v. EPA Supreme Court Ruling

Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruled to limit the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ability to regulate greenhouse gas emissions (that cause climate change) from power plants. Congress and SCOTUS are not climate experts – they are unqualified to make decisions on climate science and environmental protections that will impact billions of people.

Roe v. wade

June 24, 2022

Roe v. Wade Supreme Court Ruling

Roe v. Wade, a landmark decision that granted access to abortion under the United States constitution for half a century, was struck down by our right wing extremist court. Gender justice and climate struggle are deeply intertwined. A movement for environmental rights requires fighting for the freedom of all historically marginalized communities and peoples.

As we work to embed our strikes in larger campaigns, we’re expanding more deliberately into the policy space. If you’re interested in helping us do that, please reach out!
