In the U.S., we’re working at all levels to halt fossil fuel expansion and align government policies with science and justice.

OVERVIEW OF WORK

In the United States, Oil Change is bringing mobilization, research, policy, and communications support to bear at the federal, state, and local levels to stop fossil fuel infrastructure projects and keep oil, gas, and coal in the ground. In partnership with grassroots movements, allies, and coalitions, Oil Change is working to end U.S. government subsidies and finance propping up the fossil fuel industry, and fighting for aggressive regulation of the private financial industry to end fossil finance.

Oil Change also works to support frontline communities confronting fossil fuel infrastructure across the North American continent. We prioritize supporting Indigenous and frontline voices, including working in partnership with local Indigenous groups as well as national and international coalitions.
