Nov 17-20: People vs. Oil & Gas summit

Pittsburgh, the epicenter of shale gas exploitation, has been selected as the location to gather for the national People vs. Oil & Gas Infrastructure, A Summit for Communities Fighting Back.

Pittsburgh is hosting one of the largest gatherings of communities fighting back against fossil fuels. The oil and gas industry is aggressively planning expansion, putting more and more lives and livelihoods on the line.  Whether you’re fighting fracking, tar sands, pipelines, oil trains, gas storage, refineries, chemical plants, you'll be able to share stories, strategy, skills, and plans to collaborate.

This summit is for any grassroots or frontline activists ready to do more.  The program will include key panel discussions, trainings and collective strategy building.  The local Pittsburgh community will also open the summit with a big welcome and close the last day by leading us into the streets for a fun, cooperative action.

The training sessions will be split into four fun, informative tracks:  
Advocacy and technical legal skills, political campaigning, action/arts workshopping, and organizing/recruitment training.
