F R A C K I N G:
Building a Diverse Movement to Win
Hosted by Californians Against Fracking
Tia Lebherz, Food & Water Watch
David Braun, Americans & Californians Against Fracking
As fracking continues to expand at an unrelenting pace in California, a movement to stop it is rising up and, like New York,
is preparing to win a moratorium. But these wins aren’t easy, and this one will be hard won.
The good news is that powerful networks exist and smart organizing is going on in multiple communities to stop the oil and gas industry and their toxic processes.
Come hear about what the membership of Californians Against Fracking is planning for the fall, share your ideas, and find out how you can plug in for the win.
Tia Lebherz is the Northern California organizer for Food & Water Watch. Based in Oakland, she works to engage activists and hold elected officials accountable on a range of issues across the region including fracking, water privatization, and food issues including factory farms and genetic engineering.
Prior to joining Food & Water Watch, Tia worked extensively in the Midwest organizing on campaigns for clean energy and fair food. Tia most recently worked as the Michigan organizer for Food & Water Watch based in Detroit.
David Braun is a co-founder of Americans Against Fracking and New Yorkers Against Fracking, and has recently relocated back to his home state of California to fight fracking where he works with Californians Against Fracking, a coalition of over 150 organizations fighting for a ban. While in New York, David founded and worked with several grassroots anti-fracking organizations including United for Action, Sane Energy Project, among others. Previously, he was the grassroots coordinator for the films, GASLAND and GASLAND II. Before working on the fracking issue, he worked with MoveOn and has also engaged with numerous other social, environmental and economic justice campaigns.
Announcements will follow.
