Oil Money Out petition gathering event

August 12, 2017

What is the O$O campaign?

In the past year, the oil industry spent an historic 36.1 million dollars to lobby California lawmakers. Over the past 10 years, the industry has spent 0 million to influence California politics, more than any other interest group. This spending spree has paid huge dividends for these companies, allowing them to quash or neuter any meaningful legislation that might significantly curb their power to drill and pollute. This is particularly significant as during this time, the state of California performed independent studies which had notable findings on the toxicity of oil operations and made strong recommendations to protect public health, none of which have been implemented or addressed, leaving the general public vulnerable to contamination and toxic exposure.

As guardians of the public trust, the lack of action from our governor and our legislators our to protect the public is unacceptable.

Until oil money stops poisoning our democracy, the people of the state of California will continue to be poisoned by industry practices. California’s political leaders need to make their primary allegiance clear: is it to the oil industry or the health and safety of their constituents? The days of having it both ways have to come to an end!

How can you get involved?

On August 12th, people like you will be hosting events at their community farmers\' markets and supermarkets all around the state of California to spread the word, hand out fact sheets, and collect signatures.

Will you host an event in your area?
