2016 is going to be a BIG year for Florida, and I'm not talking about the Presidential election. I'm talking about the fact that this year the entire country will watch the Sunshine State to see if fracking operations expand statewide, including in the Everglades, or if local jurisdictions keep their right to ban this extreme drilling. The decision could be close as the Florida State Assembly considers two bills to expedite fracking and shut down local opposition.
The Florida State Assembly reconvenes next week in Tallahassee -- and we'll be waiting for them at the State House. On January 20th, we will join our friends, Floridians Against Fracking, for the Reclaiming Florida's Future rally to demand a statewide ban on fracking, a just transition to renewables, the continuance of existing fracking bans and assurances that local jurisdictions won't forfeit their right to prohibit extreme energy extraction. But in order to make this event a success, we need to get as many fracktivists to the state capital as possible.
Florida is a big state, and Tallahasee is pretty far away from the homes of many Florida Fracktivists who want to attend and speak with their Assemblymembers. Many of them don't have vehicles or the means to get up to Tallahassee, so we need your help to rent as many buses as possible to transport anyone and everyone who wants to attend the rally. Can you please chip in to help get Florida Fracktivists rolling?
- $25 gets one fracktivist to Tallahassee;
- $150 gets a van of fracktivists to Tallahassee;
- $500 helps pay for a bus to Tallahassee;
- $1,000 sponsors an entire bus of fracktivists.
