When projects are too inherently damaging and risky to ecosystems and humankind — like plans to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge — no insurance company should be involved. And when insurance backs out, companies cannot drill.

Join us in delivering the thousands of petitions we’ve collected to Travelers Insurance Hartford headquarters asking them not to underwrite oil and gas drilling in the Arctic.

We’ll hear from speakers working on this campaign, then walk around downtown Hartford on public sidewalks, circling the Travelers Plaza where organizers will deliver our petitions. Dress for the weather!
