Climate Law In Our Hands

We are responding to climate emergencies – heat waves, wildfires, and droughts unlike anything we’ve seen before – and it’s no secret that fossil fuel companies have played a huge role in this crisis.

For decades multinational fossil fuel companies like Chevron, Shell and ExxonMobil have lobbied against climate action, attacked climate science and undermined renewable energy in order to make more money selling products that cause climate change. Unless and until we make it clear that they will be held legally responsible for their role in contributing to the climate crisis, our communities will bear the costs of heat waves and wildfires while fossil fuel industry CEOs and their shareholders pocket the profits.

With the frightening rate at which our world is changing due to human-caused climate change, we have the right to demand accountability from the fossil fuel industry. And we need your help to do it. 

By supporting West Coast’s Climate Law in Our Hands program, your donation today can help us continue to claim the legal power and responsibility of our communities to hold the fossil fuel industry accountable.
