Check out this press release from Friends of the Earth and NC WARN about the new report: Former energy exec warns Dominion, Duke investors to abandon high-risk gas pipeline.
The No Toxic Money Pledge campaign launched in February, with just over 20 people who have signed the pledged so far. 350 Triangle has been working with Friends of the Earth Action, Center for Biological Diversity Action Fund, Red-tailed Hawk Collective, Sunrise Movement NC, and Food and Water Watch Action on this campaign.
Join us Tuesday, May 19, at 7 pm for No Toxic Money Pledge Volunteer Training!
Duke and Dominion Energy have been polluting our politics by using their customer’s money to pay off politicians with campaign contributions. We are asking everyone running for office in North Carolina to take the pledge to refuse money from Duke and Dominion.
Some of you may have received this, but wanted to make sure you knew of this opportunity. 350.orgis launching a Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) Leadership program, a training and leadership program created by Black organizers at 350.org dedicated to climate and racial justice.
The APPLICATION DEADLINE is May 8th at 11:59 pm EST. Link to Application. Applicants will be notified about their acceptance by May 15th 2020. Let me know if you apply!
