Mission & Goals

CLEAN BREAK is a committee of the Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club that promotes the transition from dirty fossil fuels to clean renewable energy! We advocate for an end to oil and gas drilling, fracking and all other forms of well stimulation, production, and distribution in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.

Oil and gas production and distribution pose unacceptable risks to the health and safety of our communities; environmental quality, including air, water and soil; natural resources; geology and seismic activity; and climate.

These risks are of particular concern in Los Angeles County where many oil and gas wells are located in close proximity to densely populated urban neighborhoods, resulting in toxic emissions in low-income communities of color that are already disproportionately impacted by urban pollution.

To reduce demand for fossil fuels, CLEAN BREAK will support and collaborate with the Angeles Chapter’s Climate Change Committee to promote a dramatic increase in the use of clean, renewable energy sources.

Description

The committee’s work will focus on three areas:

Education The committee will raise awareness through research, education, outreach, presentations and training of Sierra Club members and the general public through dissemination of scientifically-grounded, peer-reviewed, evidence-based information about oil and gas production and distribution and their environmental risks.

Organizing The committee will join in solidarity with other relevant environmental groups whose positions are consistent with National Sierra Club policies.

Political Activism The committee will advocate for legislation and regulations that mitigate the environmental impacts of oil and gas drilling, fracking and all other forms of well stimulation, production, and distribution, especially in sensitive environments.
