Fracking Initiatives Benefit. Friday, July 25.
Dr. Sandra Steingraber, scientist, author, and mother, will discuss strategies for building the movement to stop fracking and protect our communities and climate
This event is a special fundraiser for the dedicated residents of 3 California counties who have collected signatures to put fracking ban measures on their county ballots in November. The oil industry has already shown it will fight these measures. We must show the Bay Area’s strong support for local communities standing up for their rights to clean air, water, energy and a safer climate for our children.
Tickets are $20 but donations beyond the ticket price are encouraged to help fight the power of Big Oil.
To appreciate the power and clarity of Ms. Steingraber’s voice, you could no better than reading the 2012 Huffington Post article summarizing her statement to the Democratic Conference of the New York Senate, in which she addresses both the dangers of fracking and the corruptibility of the legislative process. (New York state subsequently passed a 5-year moratorium on fracking. Challenges to local bans on fracking are now being heard by the state Court of Appeals.)
