On November 26, we had a press conference to promote and celebrate the Off Fossil Fuels for a Better Future Act and our bold movement to WIN powerful climate legislation! Speakers: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI) Rep. Barbara Lee (CA) Rep. Jan Schakowsky (IL) Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (NJ) David Galarza, Puerto Rican activist & advocate w/ Casa Pueblo Robin Harris, Organize Florida Rita Collins, a nurse and member of National Nurses United State Delegate Shane Robinson (MD) Wenonah Hauter of Food & Water Watch The Off Fossil Fuels for a Better Future Act (HR 3671, Gabbard, HI-02), is the most aggressive piece of climate legislation ever introduced in Congress. Also known as the #OFFAct, the bill would place a moratorium on new fossil fuel projects and moves our electricity and most transportation systems to 100% renewable energy by 2035. It would also provide for a truly just transition for environmental justice communities and those working in the fossil fuel industry.
