I wanted to send you a quick update about the anti-fracking campaign and tell you about some upcoming events.
We’re excited to say that we are up to 33 municipal resolutions against fracking! On Thursday,, Escambia County passed a county resolution that was a major victory since it is a county that has conventional drilling in then past that could easily turn into fracking.
You can see a list of the resolutions below, but note, about 7 resolutions from the past week are still not up yet, but we’re trying to update this as quickly as possible:
We are also proud to announce that Oscar nominated director Josh Fox will be joining us on a teleconference call next Tuesday, Aug. 25 at 7p to talk to us about all he’s learned about fracking from his documentaries and how other communities have defeated the oil and gas industry in places like New York and Maryland. The call in number is 866 906 7447 and code 573 5307#. Please share this event page with your members, friends, and family:
We’re also hoping to have a call with all of our partners the week after that to discuss next steps and how best to use this momentum to move the state bill to ban fracking…so we’ll keep you posted!
