Jan 30: Toxic Neighbor press conference

Join PennFuture, the Breathe Project, and other local activists outside of Governor Tom Wolf’s Pittsburgh office at 301 Fifth Ave. for a press conference as we deliver a petition demanding that state leaders stop the petrochemical industry’s expansion in our region.

Speakers include Larry J. Schweiger (President Emeritus, PennFuture), Matthew Mehalik, PhD (Executive Director, Breathe Collaborative), Peggy Fried (Allegheny County citizen, member of Clean Air Council, and organizer of a recent environmental event on fossil energy), and Joanne Martin (Beaver County citizen, member of the Beaver County Marcellus Awareness Community, and one of the founders of ReImagine Beaver, an organization that has worked to promote renewable energy and healthy alternative industries in Beaver County).

11 a.m. to noon at 301 Fifth Avenue, 15222.

Let folks know you're coming on the Facebook event page!  There will also be a pizza-fueled community sign-making event the night before (6 p.m. on January 29 at PennFuture's offices at 200 First Avenue, 15222).
