Californians Against Fracking Convergence
Laney College from 3:00-6:00 p.m.
Immediately after the March for Real Climate Leadership in Oakland on February 7th, Californians Against Fracking (CAF) will host a statewide convergence in Downtown Oakland. Activists who are working to stop fracking in their communities will convene to hear more about CAF and to discuss how their local community or organization can engage with others across the state. The convergence is for people who have been working for years to stop fracking, as well as for those who are just becoming involved in this critical work.
The last year and a half has shown us what is possible when people unite against fracking. The California anti-fracking movment has grown, has won some big fights – like fracking bans in San Benito and Mendocino counties — and made real advances. Join activists from across the state as we work together to continue to build and unify our statewide movement.
Here are the details
WHAT: Californians Against Fracking Post-March Convergence
WHERE: Laney College Forum, East 10th Street (between Fallon and 5th Ave.)
WHEN: February 7th, 4:00-6:00 p.m.
At the convergence we’ll hear special guests visiting from New York fresh off a historic victory where they won a statewide ban on fracking. Panelist will share stories from the field while comparing and contrasting the fight here in California. After the panel, participants will have an opportunity to discuss regional work happening in their communities and help shape the California movement to ban fracking in 2015.
