Moving Beyond Dirty Energy

Pipelines are the superhighways for toxic oil spills and carbon emissions. They cut through tribal lands, farm country, and treasured landscapes, threatening our health, water, and livelihoods with every mile. From extraction to emissions, the oil industry prioritizes profits over people.

Young people across the country are organizing to stop other dirty oil and gas infrastructure and set an economic, cultural, and political precedent that says we can no longer be written off by corporations as a disposable generation.

Stopping dirty fossil fuel infrastructure is one of the first steps toward building the just, clean energy future we know is possible.

With bold actions, coordinated solidiarity, and local organizing in each of our communities, we're building a movement to stop tar sands, the Bakken oilfields, and all other dangerous forms of oil extraction at the source—and keep all fossil fuels in the ground.
