New York City’s clean water supply is currently being threatened by a method of natural gas drilling known as hydraulic fracturing. Community organizations are racing to prevent the reckless endangerment of local ecosystems and communities -- the Oscar-nominated documentary Gasland and a NYTimes series are raising public awareness, even in the face of the looming expiration date of the temporary moratorium preventing fracking in the state.
We are a student coalition dedicated to banning hydraulic fracturing in New York State and beyond. We believe that in order to create change we must start at home. Our goal is empowerment through education and change through action.
Fracking threatens the physical health and social integrity of our generation. We seek to expose the true costs and consequences of hydraulic fracturing and to prevent irreversible damages to our environment, our communities, and our future.
