Please make plans to take part in a powerful event this March 27th at 6:30 PM! Charlotte is one of only 2 North Carolina locations chosen for the national fracked communities tour. You’ll definitely want to hear the stories and learn how we can help protect our air, water, and lands.
Can you join us on Thursday, March 27th at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Charlotte to hear how fracked communities are fighting back?
Fracking wells, industrial zones, and contaminated water. Those are the realities that people across the country are living with where fracking exists. We know that North Carolina isn’t worth the risk, and some friends are coming to town to help us fight back.
“Cautionary Tales of Fracked Communities,” a nationwide speakers tour, is coming to Charlotte to help us in our fight. It’s a chance to hear from people living in the shadow of gas rigs, and learn how they are fighting back.
Thursday March 27 at 6:30 PM
Unitarian Universalist Church of Charlotte
234 North Sharon Amity Road
Charlotte, NC 28211
Speakers will include:
- Karen Feridun, a grassroots activist from Kutztown, PA who is fighting against fracking in her community. She helped convince the Pennsylvania Democratic party to add a Fracking Moratorium to their party platform.
- Jill Wiener, small business owner turned activist from New York who has been leading the charge to keep fracking out of New York.
- Robert Nehman, a father from Iowa whose life was turned upside down after frac sand mining came to his town
The second part of the meeting will be a training on how to meet with elected officials.
Together, we can keep fracking out of North Carolina, and ensure that the next series of cautionary tales aren’t from the Tarheel state.
See you there!
