An environmental injustice is happening in British Columbia, where yet another pipeline is being built against the wishes of the indigenous people. The names are different but the story line is familiar. One common theme is that banks like JP Morgan Chase are providing the funding. This gives us an opportunity to fight far away injustice right here at home.

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.
