Location Details

Event Type Panel Discussion
In the run up to the March for Real Climate Leadership, anti-fracking activists are hitting the road and touring the state to bring together Californians in common cause. They'll be highlighting the different ways the fossil fuel industry is ravaging our communities, our health, our water, and our future.

The tour will be made up of several evening panel discussion events showcasing how everyday Californians are in the fight of their lives against all aspects of the fossil fuel economy including extraction, infrastructure, chemicals and toxicity, as well as the industry’s assault on sustainable businesses and innovation.
