350 Chicago is joining a coalition of activists and organizations in Chicago to protest the American Petroleum Institute (API) conference this November 16th at 4:30 PM. This is an opportunity to allow more Chicago residents to make connections between the extreme weather and flooding we experienced this summer and the need to combat the global climate crisis.
API is a lobbying organization for oil and gas companies such as BP, Shell, Chevron, Exxon Mobil and many more. The front group plays a crucial role in maintaining profits for and preventing the regulation of the fossil fuel companies most culpable for the global climate crisis. API should not be allowed to host their conference in Chicago unopposed!
We will be gathering to tell the oil and gas industry that the fossil fuel era must end!
Here are the details:
- Tell Hyatt to cancel API’s Chicago conference – No more support for fossil fuel criminals.
- Tell Big Oil and Gas to stop developing new fossil fuel projects, and wind down existing infrastructure.
- Make Big Oil pay for their crimes and fund a just transition to a clean energy future.
- Create clean energy jobs, build sustainable housing, develop better public transit, and retrofit schools with green technology.
