Nov 17: Marcellus Protest Frack Forum

In celebration of the second anniversary of Pittsburgh's trail-blazing ban on fracking being adopted -- which was due, in large part, to the grassroots activism that sprung forth from the newly-formed Marcellus Protest -- we are pleased to invite you to the first Marcellus Protest Frack Forum. 

When: Saturday, November 17th, 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Where: Friends Meeting House, 4836 Ellsworth Ave. Pittsburgh, 15213 (there's parking in adjacent lot)
Who: Anyone concerned about fracking – we welcome new folks looking to get involved!
* We'll meet & strategize, have some fun & celebrate the ban, a victory in which Pittsburgh truly set an example for the world.
* We'll look at where we've been and where we are now.
* Discuss the movement's direction for the future.
* Share recent news & projects from groups around SWPA
* Look at what activists are doing around the country
* Learn how to combat the latest industry PR & efforts by some elected officials to overturn the ban on fracking.
* Frack Forum will be a potluck (please bring something to share).

As many of our communities are beginning to realize how clear and present the dangers from fracking really are, now is the time for all of us to come together, collaborate, and reignite the movement in our region.
