In 2013, the Sierra Club Loma Prieta Chapter formed a Fracking Action Committee. Until fracking is proven safe in our communities and ecosystems, our goals are to:
• Support Sierra Club California's efforts to pass a state-wide moratorium on fracking through Senate Bill 1132 (Mitchell & Leno) which is in-line with Sierra Club policy
• Work with Santa Clara County Supervisors to discuss adopting an ordinance and/or a moratorium until one is adopted
• Support our partner, San Benito Rising, on their fracking campaign
• Educate and empower people in our Chapter with knowledge on what's happening in their communities and in California, what rights they have, and to avoid having to protest unsafe fracking
Our team meets every fourth Thursday of the month from 6:00PM-8:00PM in the Peninsula Conservation Center located at 3921 Ea. Bayshore Road, Palo Alto, CA 94303. Join Us in the Library!
