--

In 2014, San Benito County voted for Measure J and sent a powerful message of hope -- that local democracy is alive and communities can still control their destiny.

In 2015, San Benito must defend the will of the people in the courts. The Oil Industry will try to misuse the legal system to overturn Measure J. But like the communities in New York who successfully banned fracking, the people of San Benito will prevail in court...

The fight continues in 2015. Please help by donating to the Measure J Legal Defense Fund. http://www.protectsanbenito.org/donate.html
