Community Perspectives: Natural Gas Impacts in Southwest PA
Your neighbors are gathering to meet their elected officials as well as religious leaders, air quality and public health experts, and other community leaders. There will be opportunities to share your story with decision-makers and on video! We will be recording stories to share with Governor Wolf, the incoming Environmental Protection Agency, and Senators Casey and Toomey.
The program will run through two parts, both particularly focused on the critical issue of air pollutants.
The first hour will feature story-sharing. Neighbors will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with one another and with their elected officials and community leaders to share their thoughts and experiences regarding the oil and gas industry. Everyone in attendance will have a chance to document their words, as as well.
During the second hour, a panel comprised of a broad selection of community leaders will hold a powerful conversation on the issue of methane.
Share your thoughts and experiences. Make a difference.
6-8 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn at Southpointe. Free and open to the public.
This event is being organized by a coalition of public health, community advocacy, faith, and environmental organizations.
