People's Hearing on Fracking

By Rita Yelda, WNY Organizer, Food & Water Watch; WNY Drilling Defense.
Fracking for natural gas puts our air, land and water at risk. And despite plans to frack Western New York, the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) skipped over our region when they held public meetings.

A People’s Hearing On Fracking will provide Western New Yorkers with the hearing that the DEC never did. And unlike the downstate events staged by the DEC, this will be a genuine public hearing where all speakers and all points of view will be heard. Join us to speak your mind on fracking and make our legislators listen up!

In conjunction with the hearing, this event will have educational workshops, prestigious speakers and cultural events. This will be the biggest fracking event this area has ever seen! Let's give Western New York a collective public voice on fracking! Can you be there to share in it all?

See you there on June 2nd!
