Join STOP TxDOT I-45 in organizing to save our community from the costly and dangerous North Houston Highway Improvement Project.

Building camaraderie and deepening our roots, join XR Houston every Thursday night as we read Lisa Fithian's Shut It Down: Stories From A Fierce And Loving Resistance.

On July 6, Extinction Rebellion NYC is kicking off 3 weeks of rebellious digital-art-making against Microsoft, Amazon and Google for their massive deals with Big Oil (keep it in the ground!). Standing with the 10,000+ workers who have demanded their employers close these contracts, we ask all tech users to show solidarity through a petition at BigTechLovesBigOil.com, and then storm the Internet with memes, videos, and funny art that builds awareness of just how much Big Tech loves Big Oil.
