We have 12 years left to RISE for real change, and the BOLD solutions are emerging from the frontlines of Big Oil & Gas activities. From the Arctic Circle to the Bayou of Louisiana, The Frontline Oil and Gas Conference (May 16-18) will bring hundreds of impacted community members from across the country together in the Ponca Nation in Oklahoma for three days of training and collective work to protect communities from oil and gas related pollution and other harms. Visit www.frontlineoilandgas.org to learn more.  This Indigenous-led space focuses on strategy led by those rising on the frontlines.  
Our fundraising goal is to support the travel of 100 grassroots leaders who could not otherwise participate in this historic 3 day gathering.  We have nearly reached our goal, but we need your help.  Will you support the travel and participation of our most critical changemakers on the frontlines?
Not just another conference, this event is about building for frontline power! Please support the scholarship program today, ensuring frontline leaders can attend.  We have so much to learn about what is truly needed to stand for the earth and our communities from Indigenous and peoples of color, and it is definitely time to strategize together around oil and gas action, and to learn how to organize with intersectional integrity.  

 Environmental Justice means always standing with frontline communities most impacted—and recognizing that the center of the storm is often where innovation and courage meet to propel our movements forward.   Over the last several years, Indigenous peoples and frontline communities of color have taken their rightful place at the front of our movements for system change.  
In order for movements to grow we need leadership development- and one of the key ways of building leaders is bringing them together to learn and strategize. Past National Summits within the Environmental Justice movement have seen direct impacts on local movements—by improving the knowledge and skills of those on the ground.  They also provide a space to talk through strategies that are working on the ground- and provide an onramp for new activists.
Movements are strong when there are connections across the boundaries of fights. As we have seen from past national summits there is nothing more powerful than being in a room of fellow activist fight issues similar to your own. Helping those directly impacted by oil and gas extraction realize that they are not alone- creates a much needed sense of hope. Please make a gift of support today!
