People VS Oil And Gas Summit

November 17 to 20, 2017

Pittsburgh, PA


From November 17th to the 20th, join us in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for one of the largest gatherings of communities fighting back against fossil fuels. We’ll be sharing stories, strategy, skills and plans to collaborate.

With Trump in office, connecting our local and state fights is critical. The oil and gas industry is making plans to aggressively expand, putting more and more lives and livelihoods are on the line. Whether you’re fighting pipelines, oil trains, refineries, LNG, fracking or tar sands, this summit is for you! Let’s build towards a just climate future together.

The people most affected by fossil fuel development must lead. Nobody knows the stories of climate and social injustice like they do. They know what it takes to win. The conference will center communities across the US and Canada fighting for a just climate future. Outreach and programming for the summit are being developed by grassroots and frontline activists.
