Some people from the Shale region of PA — where Wellesley’s fracked gas comes from — will be visiting Massachusetts on Wednesday, March 7 at 7 PM – 9 PM at the First Church in Jamaica Plain at 6 Eliot St. — for the “We’re In This Together: Battling for Clean Energy and Fighting Fracking from Pennsylvania to Massachusetts” event. People from Wellesley interested in going can sign up to carpool with Sustainable Wellesley here.
You are invited to this evening with community leaders from the Marcellus Shale region of Pennsylvania. Families, landowners, and whole communities there have been deeply impacted by intensive development of fracking wells and facilities, and their struggle connects directly with our use of fossil fuels in the Northeast. Pennsylvania activists sharing their powerful stories will include Lois Bjornson, Craig Leland Stevens, Brian Latkanich and Jane Worthington.
This event is free and open to the public. Donations encouraged to support the Jamaica Plain Forum. Sponsored by Clean Water Action, Mass Power Forward, Mothers Out Front & Mothers Out Front – Jamaica Plain Organizing Team, Resist the Pipeline and the Jamaica Plain Forum.
Add this to event to your calendar as it is a chance to meet the people on the other end of the pipes and should be a powerful evening.
