March to End Fossil Fuels

With wildfire smoke choking the air we breathe, hurricanes and floods threatening our homes, and toxic pollution making us sick, it has never been more urgent to end our dependence on the leading cause of these crises – fossil fuels. And to ensure our natural right for swimmable, fishable, and drinkable waterways, it is critical that President Biden reject new fossil fuel projects, phase out fossil fuel production, and declare a climate emergency.

In New York this September, the United Nations will gather world leaders for a first-of-its-kind Climate Ambition Summit to demand that nations stop developing new oil, gas and coal projects and begin phasing out fossil fuels once and for all. With his recent approvals for mega-polluting projects like the Willow Oil Drilling Project and the Mountain Valley Pipeline, President Biden must immediately reverse course to earn his seat at the table. But it will take all of us acting together to make sure he does.

Riverkeeper and our fellow clean water advocates and protectors will gather between 12:15pm and 12:45pm outside of the 1 Hotel Central Park’s entrance on 58th Street (1414 6th Ave, New York, NY 10019); the march will commence at 1pm. More logistical details to follow.
