“No Fracking Way!”

IMAGE-2011Q3News-no-fracking-wayAs You Sow will be hosting a fracking fundraiser in Los Angeles on October 25th and you’re invited! We will focus on the toxic threat that hydraulic fracturing poses to communities across the country—including Los Angeles.

The event will be held in a private loft on the boardwalk of Venice from 5:00 to 8:00pm. Josh Fox, Oscar-nominated writer/director of “Gasland,” will make a special Skype appearance to discuss his upcoming sequel.

Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” is a way to extract natural gas by drilling a deep well and injecting large quantities of chemically infused water into the earth. Much of the water reemerges carrying toxic chemicals into the surrounding air and water.

Santa Barbara and Baldwin Hills are already victims of fracking: both communities have reported subsequent health problems and damage to their homes.
