  • What the Frack!

    Image may contain: text

    Fracking is a dangerous method of drilling for oil and gas that threatens air quality, drinking water, and people's health.

    It can't be done safely. In order to protect our communities, fracking must be banned.

    Communities across Florida have already made it clear they want fracking banned, passing 90 local measures against fracking in cities and counties that represent over 70% of the state population. It's time the Legislature stepped up and passed a statewide ban.

    Join us with the Institute for Civic Engagement, YES! Club, Earth Ethics Institute and hear from knowledageblr panelists to discuss the impacts of FRACKING on our health, local economic development and communities.

    PANELISTS: TBA
