Call to Action: LA City Attorney, Release the Report!

See whole post here.

#CalltoAction We need your help in our fight for a 2,500 set back from oil drilling sites near our homes, parks, and hospitals! We have been targeting our City Attorney TO ACT in a a time of overwhelming crisis. We refuse to let entire communities be exposed to toxic oil emissions and we refuse to BARGAIN with greedy oil companies. Keep oil drilling a whole 2500ft away from where humans live! Mike Feuer release the report and don’t SELL OUT our neighborhoods! #NoDrillingWhereWereLiving

Help us tag, tweet, and CALL script below and platform information available!
You can also email:

(ENG: Hi my name is __________________ and I live in the City of Los Angele (state which oil site you live next to). I’m calling to voice my concern about the delay in the City Attorney’s report regarding the 2500-ft human healthy and safety buffer, with a 5-year phase-out in Los Angeles. With LA County now having the most coronavirus cases in the U.S., we can’t allow toxic air pollution from oil sites to continue damaging our lungs any further. We need LA City Attorney Mike Feuer to complete the report because we deserve clean and healthy neighborhoods. We say #NoDrillingWhereWereLiving and call on City Attorney Mike Feuer to release the report immediately.)

(SPAN: Hola, mi nombre es __________________ y vivo en la ciudad de Los Ángeles (diga el lugar de extracción petrolera que está cerca de su casa). Llamo para expresar mi preocupación por el retraso en el informe de la ciudad sobre la distancia de 2.500 pies que debe haber para la seguridad y salud de los humanos y la eliminación progresiva de estos lugares en Los Ángeles durante los próximos 5 años. Dado que Los Ángeles tiene la mayoría de los casos de Coronavirus en los EE.UU., no podemos permitir que la contaminación tóxica del aire de los lugares petroleros continúe dañando nuestros pulmones. Necesitamos que el Fiscal de la Ciudad de Los Ángeles, Mike Feuer, complete el informe porque merecemos vecindarios limpios y saludables. Decimos No a la Extracción de Petróleo donde Vivimos y pedimos al Fiscal de la Ciudad, Mike Feuer que publique el informe inmediatamente.
