Indigenous Environmental Network's "Build Back Fossil Free Digital Rally" to be held January 26, 2021.

Context: 

On January 21, Indigenous organizers and our broader climate justice movement won a decade-long campaign against the Keystone XL Pipeline and a temporary moratorium on oil and gas activity in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. This is a huge victory — AND – we need to keep up momentum to make sure Biden follows through with immediate action on Line 3, Dakota Access (DAPL), rejecting all fossil project approvals, and investing in Black, Indigenous, and People of Color and an economy that works for all.

  • WHAT: #BuildBackFossilFree Digital Rally
  • WHEN: Tuesday, January 26 from 8:00pm to 9:30pm ET / 5:00pm to 6:30 p.m. PT
