All across the country, MoveOn members are standing together against fracking. And in Erie County, New York, public sentiment against fracking was so strong that the county chair introduced a bill to ban fracking on county-owned land. Sarah Alexander of the organization Food & Water Watch started a MoveOn Petition to the Erie County Legislature, asking them to support the bill. Thousands of Erie County residents spoke up to protect their air, water, and communities—and they won! Fracking and its toxic wastewater are now banned in the county—a major step forward in protecting New York and the rest of the country from the dangerous effects of fracking.
