Newsom’s announcement of a plan to ban oil and gas drilling within 1 KM of homes and schools – how a movement of people in frontline communities won this huge victory, and what needs to be done to strengthen it

New research that shows pollutants cause major health problems in people as far as 2-1/2 miles from drilling sites

The progress of the movement to ban oil and gas drilling in Contra Costa County, northern California’s fossil fuel hub.

Speakers:
