Sandra Steingraber - Fracking & Health: July 25

Sandra_Steingraber_sm.jpg350 Marin, 350 Bay Area and Californians Against Fracking invite you to hear scientist, author and activist, Dr. Sandra Steingraber on the known and hidden dangers of fracking. 

She will also discuss 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.

SPECIAL BENEFIT: This event is a special fundraiser for the brave folks in four counties in California who have collected signatures to put FRACKING BAN measures on their county ballots in November. We'll hear updates on these fracking battles and what you can do to help. 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. Purchase tickets at the 350 Bay Area website.

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
