Join us on August 3rd as we stage a sit-in at a key senator's office in Washington, DC. Our message is simple--take the lead in opposing a restoration of FERC’s quorum, or face a growing rebellion. We will not be satisfied until Congress takes at least one step toward replacing FERC with an agency dedicated to a just transition off fossil fuels (such as holding hearings to investigate the abuses of power and law by FERC).
Senators on both sides of the aisle need to understand that there will be political consequences for voting to restore FERC’s quorum. We will hold this sit-in as a necessary intervention for the survival of communities and the climate. We will be confrontational, confident, and composed as we make our demands clear and render the senators’ offices unusable for the duration of our stay.
If you are interested in participating in this action either as a participant who is willing to risk arrest, or as someone willing to play a non-arrestable support role, please fill out the below form and we will be in touch. All actions that the FERC Vacancies Coalition and Beyond Extreme Energy are a part of are committed to non-violence.
Beyond Extreme Energy will set up training, legal advice, fundraising for legal fees, legal representation, and housing as needed.
