Prioritizing breast cancer = ending fossil fuels

By Jayla Burton, Program Manager

In the state of California, one of the largest oil producers in the US, our organization has been a leader in calling for an end to dangerous drilling practices that threaten our health and increase the risk of breast cancer.

But this issue extends beyond California’s borders and the time for national action is long overdue.

Sign the petition calling on the Biden Administration to stop all new fossil fuel projects!

We are committed to an upstream approach that turns off the tap of toxic exposures, which means phasing out harmful fossil fuel extraction and production. It’s time to take action at the national level.

Hundreds of chemicals used to drill for and process fossil fuels are linked to breast cancer, as well as other health harms. Black and Brown communities, low-income neighborhoods, and people who work and live on the frontlines are disproportionately impacted by the hazards of toxic fossil fuel extraction and production.  

President Biden has a chance to implement policies that will turn the tide in the fight against the fossil fuel industry and climate change. By signing the petition you can ensure he knows that in order to truly be an administration that prioritizes breast cancer, we need that bold action to end fossil fuels.  

Join us and sign the petition to President Biden! The time has come to put an end to the harm caused by exposures to cancer-causing chemicals.
