As climate voters, we need to hear where candidates stand on projects like the Dakota Access Pipeline, which are accelerating the planet toward a catastrophic rise in global temperature. And we need to know all candidates’ stance on climate change, renewable energy and tax subsidies to Big Oil, Gas, and Coal corporations ahead of next week’s election.
The Dakota Access Pipeline is receiving worldwide attention, as a Native-led struggle against the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure through sacred land and water represents one of the most profound demonstrations of climate-change resistance. Despite the intersectional issues associated with the Dakota Access Pipeline—issues of environmental and racial justice, property rights and civil rights—the people have not heard from candidates across the country what their stance is on this pipeline and many others like it, under construction or slated to be constructed.
TO ALL CANDIDATES FOR PUBLIC OFFICE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA:
We the people, concerned climate voters, demand that you let the people know your position on the Dakota Access Pipeline and other fossil-fuel infrastructure projects like it, so that we can make informed choices when we head to the polls through November 8th to #VoteClimate.
