Fracking Waste Letter-writing Action Meeting

Date: Tuesday, May 13, 2014
Time: 7:00 PM
Presented by: Skylands Group
Leader: Norene Haberski -
Location: The Unitarian Fellowship, 1 W. Nelson Street, Newton, NJ

The Skylands Group invites you to come to a letter-writing action meeting Tues., May 13, 7PM. We will be hand-writing letters to our state Assemblypersons and Senators and the Governor urging them to ban fracking waste treatment, transport, disposal or storage in New Jersey. At least three sites in New Jersey have already accepted fracking waste, according to the Pennsylvania DEP! The bills are S1041 and A2108.

We will provide everything you need: a model letter, paper, pens, envelopes, and the addresses of your legislators and the Governor.

We can also engage in conversation as a follow up to the screening of "Groundswell Rising" last Saturday. If you were with us for that event, you will no doubt have plenty to talk about. If you missed it, we can fill you in, and hopefully you can see the film at a future showing.

The letter-writing will be followed by a meeting of the Skylands Group Executive Committee. Feel free to linger for that if you want to help us plan our own Sussex County groundswell rising to protect our air, water and land.

* Light Refreshments will be served *

Event is free and open to the public.
