What are you breathing on Saturday, May 7?



Get on the bus to Philly! Join Action United and 350Pittsburgh for the Right To Breathe rally.  We're supporting the people of Philadelphia in their fight for clean air and climate justice:
For decades, the Philadelphia Energy Solutions refinery has been making people sick. It causes over two-thirds of toxic releases in the whole city, our children suffer from asthma at twice the national average, and every day, the refinery puts more and more carbon dioxide into the air ... Now, they want to expand and turn Philadelphia into the “Houston of the Northeast.” First they're trying to build an oil import/export terminal on the Delaware River, then a giant oil pipeline to the refinery. (Edited from the Right to Breathe web site)
Action United is generously underwriting the cost of a bus to Philly and requesting a sliding scale donation of $5 to $20 per seat, depending on your means, to help defray the cost. Sign Up Now to reserve your seat and be a part of this action.

Can you sponsor "Right to Breathe" riders?

And return to Philadelphia in July for ...


On Sunday, July 24, the eve of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, thousands will march to present these demands to our national leaders: Keep fossil fuels in the ground, ban fracking, and create a just transition to a 100% renewable energy economy.
