Ann and Lee Littlewood invite you to a gathering at their house on Thursday, April 21, at 5:30 PM for a presentation about our region's part in Break Free from Fossil Fuels: a coordinated global protest against fossil fuels and for a clean energy future.
The focus of the weekend of action May 13th - 15th is the Shell and Tesoro oil refinery complex in Anacortes, WA. The facilities combined are the largest unaddressed carbon polluter in the Northwest and both facilities are proposing to expand, bringing more oil trains through our region!
The NW has earned the reputation of being "where energy projects go to die," whether it's coal, oil, or gas. Citizens have had amazing success in stopping projects that would expand fossil fuel infrastructure and contribute to climate change while risking public safety. We stop them by persistent, informed, organized citizen opposition. And, of course, that only works when we show up.
Come find out more and explore what role might suit you in the Anacortes event.
Gather at 5:30 PM, short presentation at 6:00 PM. Hors d'oeuvres and beverages provided.
