Our climate movement is fierce.
And we’re not afraid to stand up to the worst drilling and mining companies on the planet.
Over six years ago in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, Rising Tide North America emerged as a radical force in the climate movements. Seeking to connect the dots between climate change and social justice, we have built a network throughout North America that has not only fought on the frontlines of climate justice, but challenged the root causes of climate change while there.
2012 has been a watershed year for the climate movements. Community led campaigns against fracking have sprouted up in OH, PA and NY. Appalachians occupied and shut down the largest strip mining site in West Virginia. Climate activists joined up with Texas landowners to oppose the Keystone XL pipeline.
At the center of each of these environmental mobilizations and campaigns have been Rising Tide chapters and activists. This year, we’ve:
- Started new chapters from Alaska to Santa Cruz, CA to Toronto to Vermont to the Florida Keys.
- Worked with the Tar Sands Blockade in a direct action campaign to stop the southern leg of the Keystone XL pipeline.
- Trained and organized activists for civil disobediences at the Mountain Mobilization in West Virginia, the Coal Exports Action in Helena, Montana and many other events.
- Coordinated with the “Summer of Solidarity” which included actions against fracking, mountaintop removal and tar sands.
Whether its $5, $50 or $500, we’ll take whatever you can give. We’re an all-volunteer network of activists and we don’t take money from large foundations or celebrity donors. We only have you.
Please donate and help us build this movement.
