Exxon Knew: Divest From Deception Rally

System Change Not Climate Change - Dallas Chapter says
On May 25th, Exxon shareholders will meet in Dallas, Texas — and Texans will be there to tell them: #ExxonKnew. It’s time to divest from deception and destruction.

Can you be there on May 25th? RSVP here: exxonknew.org/dallas

Exxon deceived the public, misled their shareholders, and robbed humanity of a generation’s worth of time to prevent the climate crisis. This company’s shareholders need to know exactly how profoundly its deception has ravaged our air, water, climate and communities.

Texans are feeling the impacts of climate change more acutely than ever, both in the form of drought and the recent severe flooding. Meanwhile, big news dropped recently that Exxon knew about the risks of climate change half a century ago. They faced a choice: do something about it, or lie through their teeth -- guess which path they chose?

Since the news first broke last fall, hundreds of thousands of Americans and a broad coalition of organizations have called on the U.S. Department of Justice and State Attorneys General across the country to investigate Exxon’s deception. On May 25th the fight is coming home to Dallas, where Texans will come together to show that we’ve had enough of Exxon’s pollution, deception, and greed.

Make sure to check back on this page for the most up-to-date details as plans for the action come together:

7:30 AM Sign and banner holding outside (just show up, we'll provide signs and banners)
(Breakfast snacks and refreshments provided)
8:30 AM Press event, followed by more sign and banner holding until around 9:45 or 10 AM.
Yes, this is early on a week day during rush hour, but it's critically important to get a crowd there, so please do all you can to attend, at least from 8:00 - 9:30 AM.

You can also help hold Exxon accountable by signing the petition urging the U.S. Department of Justice and State Attorneys General to investigate here: exxonknew.org
