Fracking Ban Rally and Celebration in Albany Rescheduled for January 21
Due to the passing of former Governor Mario Cuomo, the State of the State Address has been re-scheduled for Wednesday, January 21st. We lend our condolences to the Cuomo family. We are also writing to inform you that our rally and celebration has been re-scheduled for the 21st as well. See original e-mail with new date below. Thank you!
Fellow New Yorker Against Fracking,
For many years, we were told fracking in New York was inevitable. That no one stops the oil and gas industry and that ultimately Governor Cuomo would cave. For many years, we said that a statewide ban was possible. That the power of the people could triumph over toxic fracking and that our Governor could be a hero by banning fracking and lead this country toward a renewable energy future. Four and a half years later, thankfully we were right.
With every great victory, comes a great party. And we are ready to celebrate and have some fun. For Renee, John and I, this campaign has been one of the most grueling, labor intensive, emotionally exhausting and hard won battles we've ever fought. We did it from a place of love for our family, friends and communities. We also did it for your families, friends and communities and all New Yorkers.
Please come and join us on January 21st in Albany from 11:30-12:30 pm for a celebration rally outside of the State of the State Address thanking the Governor and each other for this incredible victory and shift our focus to renewable energy. Following the rally we will be hosting a big party at the The Hilton Albany from 1:00-4:00 pm.
We would also like to ask you for an end of the year donation. Frack Action is a small yet powerful organization. Our team has been instrumental in developing the strategies and day-to-day organizing work that helped win a ban on fracking in New York. We have been able to do this because of support from you.
In the coming year, we plan to help lead the shift to New York becoming the renewable energy capital of our nation, as well as assisting people in other states where fracking is happening or is about to start.
