Something great and wonderful happened in Tallahassee this past winter and if you come to the University of Florida campus, 1692 McCarty Dr.  on Tuesday, April 12 at 7 o’clock, Brian Lee from Tallahassee will tell you about it.  He will give a talk entitled  “When People Power Works: How a Grassroots Movement Defeated a Half Million Dollars in Oil Money.”

This is about how a group of people called Floridians Against Fracking were able to defeat half a million dollars in Oil Money by stopping two disingenuous bills which purported to get tough on fracking but in reality facilitated this disastrous gas-extracting technique.  It was done by lots of hard work, educating the public and our lawmakers.

Free and open to the public!, this event is sponsored by the Religion Grad Student Association.  It will be held on the UF campus, McCarty Hall A,  (UF MCCA 3194) located at 1692 McCarty Dr. in Gainesville, from 7 to 8 o’clock on Tuesday April 12, 2016.
