A community-led campaign is working to end new permitting of oil and gas drilling and phase out existing drilling in Contra Costa County, with protective provisions for those fossil fuel workers whose jobs could be impacted.
We’ve made good strides towards that goal, with a city ban passed in Antioch and a moratorium in place within Brentwood. Proposed oil drilling just outside of Brentwood is on hold, thanks to public pushback. But in our climate emergency, we have no more time to lose.
Join Sunflower Alliance, Sierra Club and Youth Sustainable Leaders in Action to learn more about the ongoing campaign and find out how to get involved. Youth Activist Alexi Lindeman will review the history of the two year-old campaign and address the harm drilling does to our air, water, land, health, and climate. Learn about next steps and what you can do to help advance the campaign to end oil and gas drilling in Contra Costa County.
