Discussion with knowledgeable presenters: Discuss and ask questions of knowledgeable presenters about what you can do to stop California fracking and reduce climate change. Many different options will be presented from letter writing to volunteering for Food and Water Watch or 350.org. whatever is comfortable to you.

  • Meet and Collaborate with other people who also care like you.

  • Decide if you would like to become more involved in these issues, including running a fun house party yourself

The Sky is Pink (18min): deals with how the media and gas companies have distorted the issues around fracking. The Sky is Pink shows how the media together with gas companies made the dangers of fracking appear controversial as opposed to definite. Seeing this film will give you perspective on the methods of manipulating media that all large corporations from the tobacco companies onwards have used to influence legislators and voters.

Do you know that fracking is now going on in Northern California as close as Antioch and Pittsburgh? Contaminated water may be flowing into the San Francisco Bay as you read this announcement.

 

Do the Math [45min] is a fast-paced and inspiring film about the rising movement to solve the climate crisis. Do the Math brings up the ethical issue of what to do in the light of this reality. 350.org is offering key training in how to encourage individuals and institutions to divest stock from gas and oil corporations and how to participate in demonstrations and rallies.

 

All money goes to help ban fracking in California and reduce climate change (No one turned away for lack of funds.)
