OUR DEMANDS

Extinction Rebellion is an international apolitical network using non-violent direct action to persuade governments to act on the Climate and Ecological Emergency. 

We have four demands in the US:


01

Tell the Truth…

Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.


02

Act Now

Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.


03

Beyond Politics

Government must create and be led by the decisions of a Citizen’s Assembly on climate and ecological justice.


04

Just Transition

We demand a just transition that prioritizes the most vulnerable people and establishes indigenous sovereignty; establishes reparations and remediation led by and for Black people, Indigenous people, people of color and poor communities for years of environmental injustice, establishes legal rights for ecosystems to thrive and regenerate in perpetuity, and repairs the effects of ongoing ecocide to prevent extinction of humanity and all species, in order to maintain a livable, just planet for all.


Here's some more information about the possible solutions:

Demands 1 & 2: The Climate Mobilization,  Beyond Zero Emissions,  Rapid Transition Alliance, Green New Deal Group,  One Million Climate Jobs and  The Breakthrough Institute.

Demand 3:The Sortition Foundation.

These demands remain under development
