The March to End Fossil Fuels has asked Pres. Joe Biden to stop all federal approvals for new fossil fuel projects, phase out production of fossil fuels on public lands and waters, and declare a climate emergency.
"We are coming together during Climate Week to show the Biden Administration and Sen. Joe Manchin that we can't afford one more second of fossil fuels and stop greenlighting pipelines like the Mountain Valley Pipeline. These pervasive pipelines are exposing humans, animals, and the natural world to toxic chemicals in fossil fuels, damaging critical cultural sites in my ancestral homelands, and current ongoing intimidation in my communities,” said Dr. Crystal Cavalier-Keck, CEO/Co-Founder of 7 Directions of Service, Occaneechi Band of Saponi Nation.
