When Governor Cuomo attends the State Democratic Convention, be there to demand a ban on fracking!

On May 22, Governor Cuomo is attending the Democratic Convention on Long Island – and we’re going to be there in full force to demand a permanent ban on fracking in New York State.

This is a very important event for Cuomo. He’ll be describing his vision for New York’s future. We need to show him the power of our movement demanding a future that’s frack-free. We’ll call on the governor to ban fracking and stop fracking infrastructure, including the Port Ambrose liquefied natural gas facility proposed for off the coast of scenic Long Beach.

WHEN: Thursday, May 22, 10:00 am – noon

WHERE: State Democratic Convention, Hilton Long Island/Huntington Hotel, 598 Broad Hollow Road, Melville
