A Future Beyond Oil in California

Tell Gov. Newsom: No drilling where we’re living.

In a historic action, Gov. Newsom has proposed banning new oil and gas wells within 3,200 feet of homes, schools, and healthcare facilities to protect people from fossil fuel pollution. This health-and-safety buffer would be the largest in the country. But the oil industry will fight this important protection every step of the way.

Tell the governor you strongly support his proposal — and need him to do even more.

More than 5 million Californians live within a mile of an active oil well, with drilling concentrated in low-income neighborhoods of color. Frontline leaders from these communities have been fighting for years for protections from this dangerous fossil fuel pollution. With his proposal, Gov. Newsom has taken a big step toward climate justice leadership. But the health-and-safety buffer must stop existing oil wells in addition to new ones.

Tell Gov. Newsom and state officials to end all neighborhood drilling for good and move California to a future beyond oil.
