Today! Press Conference To Support The Clean Power Plan says
--> RSVP at http://sc.org/cleanpowertx

Join Austin Mayor Steve Adler, Austin City Council Members Greg Casar, Delia Garza, Ann Kitchen, Kathie Tovo, and Leslie Pool, State Representative Donna Howard, Amelia Fulbright with Labyrinth Progressive Student Ministry, and Trish O'Day with Texas PSR to show your support for the FIRST EVER limits on carbon pollution from power plants.

President Obama and the EPA will announce on August 3rd a historic action to fight climate disruption, and you can be there to support them.

The proposed Clean Power Plan will reduce carbon emissions at power plants across Texas and increase development of clean energy. But because this represents a threat to fossil fuel interests, they’re fighting back with insider lobbying and a plan to derail this historic action. Greg Abbott and Ken Paxton have already vowed to stand with polluters and big coal.

To fight back, we're showing the EPA and President Obama we've got their back when it comes to taking action on climate. The fossil fuel industry is counting on you to stay home instead of coming out to support the most impactful action any world leader has taken on climate.

Stand with Mayor Steve Adler and other local leaders and join our press conference Wednesday, August 5th at City Hall Plaza to show big polluters that Texans support climate action!

WHO: Sierra Club, Environment Texas, Public Citizen, Environmental Defense Fund, Texas Physicians for Social Responsibility, SEED Coalition, Texas Impact and you!

GUEST SPEAKERS: Austin Mayor Steve Adler, Austin Citycouncilmembers Greg Casar, Delia Garza, Ann Kitchen, Kathie Tovo and Leslie Pool, State Representative Donna Howard, Amelia Fulbright of Labyrinth Progressive Student Ministry, and Trish O'Day!
