An Oil Free America aims to minimize the effects of the environmentally destructive oil industry in terms of carbon dioxide emissions, oil spills, and harm to ecosystems. Our NGO aims to prevent oil drilling in the Arctic in particular because climate change is the most evident in this region and its ecosystems are already under threat. Therefore, allowing the Arctic to be drilled will further aggravate the climate change in this region which will in turn cause sea levels to rise, harm local habitats and species even further, and also hurt the communities whose livelihood depend on the Arctic area.


Evident in our name, an Oil Free America strives to actualize an America that no longer relies on oil as a source of energy. Our NGO aims to reduce the nation’s dependence on oil by educating the public on the environmental footprint of oil as well as the dangers of oil drilling and exploration in the Arctic, advocating the use of alternative green energy sources, promoting the use of cleaner alternatives to driving such as zero-emission vehicles, and raising awareness of and funding for green energy technologies.
