Event Description

350 Bay Area and Californians Against Fracking invite you to hear scientist, author and activist, Dr. Sandra Steingraber, author ofRaising Elijah and Living Downstream, on the known and hidden dangers of fracking and how to build a movement to stop this extreme extraction and protect our communities, health and the climate.  

Sandra has been a tireless advocate to prevent fracking in New York state and most recently helped deliver a health professionals letter to Governor Cuomo and the state legislature detailing the overwhelming body of scientific data which supports the continuation of a MORATORIUM on fracking.

Come to be inspired by Sandra's scientific knowledge, and her stories of how communities are fighting this industry. We'll also hear an update on the local stop fracking battles shaping up in 4- California counties this fall and to find out what you can do to help!  

SPECIAL BENEFIT: This event is a special fundraiser for the brave folks in 4 counties in California who have collected signatures to put FRACKING  BAN measures on their county ballots in November. The oil industry has already shown they will be fighting these measures and we want to show the BAY AREA'S strong support for local communities standing up for local rights, clean air, water and energy and a safer climate for our children.

Tickets are $20, but we encourage donations beyond the ticket price to help the people of California fight BIG OIL money.

Co-sponsored by Center for Biological Diversity, Food & Water Watch, Ecology Center, Alliance of Nurses for a Healthy Environment, Physicians for Social Responsibility-Bay Area
