Tell Harris County not to give our tax dollars and special treatment to ExxonMobil!


Target: Judge Hidalgo and County Commissioners

If ExxonMobil won’t treat its workers fairly and protect the Houston community, they shouldn’t receive taxpayer dollars.

For more than 19 weeks, 650 steelworkers have been locked out of their jobs without pay because these workers demanded Exxon maintain adequate staffing with experienced people. Refinery work is dangerous and these well-trained union members were seeking to protect not only themselves but also Houston community.

Meanwhile, Exxon is talking about getting taxpayer incentives and special treatment to develop new projects in Houston. This is wrong! Exxon’s disregard for both its experienced, trained workforce and the well-being of our community should not be rewarded with taxpayer dollars.

For the good of our community, ExxonMobil should end the lockout immediately and return to the job 650 workers who have decades of training for the safe operation of the refinery.

Harris County Commissioners should reject any attempt by ExxonMobil to receive taxpayer dollars or incentives linked to the development of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) infrastructure in our community. Harris County should limit CCS collaboration to employers who, by respecting the rights of working people, also prioritize the public good.

Call for Texas to invest in carbon-free, healthy schools!


It’s possible to simultaneously tackle climate change, improve the health of Texas students and their school facilities, and save millions in energy costs. The Texas Climate Jobs Project is fighting to make all of that happen. 

Schools should be safe and healthy for staff and students, and in that fact they should be a model for carbon-free buildings. Replacing old heating and air conditioning systems, fixing deteriorating rooftops, repairing outdated electrical systems — all the work that needs to be done that can bring jobs to Texans while protecting our young people.

Add your name to call for Texas to invest in carbon-free, healthy schools!

Bold climate action, good union jobs — Texas can have both. On top of that, our schools and workforce will benefit. It’s a no-brainer. We need federal and local lawmakers to make the healthy, cost-effective school model a reality for students across the state. 

Providing schools with low-cost financing for green energy could allow schools to re-invest their cost-savings into maintenance and classroom instruction, which means more money for our educators. The positive benefits can’t be overstated.
