It's time to step up and protect ourselves. FERC's permits are a form of violence. They leave our communities and the climate deeply hurt and threatened. Anything we can do to stop or delay them will leave us better off.
That's why we're gearing up for direct action.
When the Senate holds hearings in Washington, DC on Trump's nominations to FERC, we need to be ready to stop them through protest and nonviolent direct action.
If you're interested in protesting, speaking out, and/or taking action at the Senate Confirmation Hearings for Trump's FERC Commissioner nominations in Washington, DC, please fill out this interest form, and we'll be in touch. Filling out the form does not commit you to anything, so please do fill it out even if you're not sure you can participate.
We'll be in touch about next steps. Next steps will include working with those who are interested to plan an action. The action could involve civil disobedience, legal picketing outside, or both. If civil disobedience is involved, we will have the advice and support of an experienced lawyer.
Note that we do not currently know when such hearings will take place. We hope to have one or two weeks of advance notice, but that's not certainly going to be the case.
