Donation: $4 to defray hall rental fee

Oil and gas exploration or extraction activities create fracking waste we need to keep out of CT towns with bans that bar the disposal or use of millions of gallons of fracking waste. 
Jen Siskind of CT Food and Water Watch will discuss efforts to date and what you can do to move forward fracking waste bans in CT towns. Jen has literature, flyers, etc., to adapt for use when it is time for a town’s vote. 
As many Connecticut towns as possible must pass these ordinances early this year to let the State of CT know the people of Connecticut want fracking waste kept out of our state. CT has a temporary moratorium, due to end later this year, and the Director of DEEP has gone on record as not being in favor of making the temporary moratorium permanent.
