It’s time that politics be free from the influence of the oil, gas, and coal industries. As part of the No Fossil Fuel Money Coalition, we’re encouraging candidates, politicians, and their offices to sign the No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge.

The Pledge

I pledge not to take contributions over $200 from oil, gas, and coal industry executives, lobbyists, and PACs and instead prioritize the health of our families, climate, and democracy over fossil fuel industry profits.

  • Clayton Hamerski, running for NHC Register of Deeds, has signed the No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge.
