Here’s the New Yorkers Against Fracking Letter:

Dear Friend —

On the eve of the 2016 Democratic National Convention, when the nation’s spotlight will shine on Philadelphia, we will gather in Philadelphia to march for a Clean Energy Revolution.

We are already experiencing the effects of climate change with destructive flooding in West Virginia, devastating wild fires in California, and deadly heat waves in India and Pakistan. Climate change poses an existential threat to humans and all life forms on earth. We need to make sure our elected officials know the fierce urgency to tackle climate change now and not kick the can down the road. 

We need a massive turn-out in Philadelphia to make it loud and clear to those who can implement policies on all levels of our government that we do not want more dirty fossil fuels and nuclear power and we want to transition to 100% renewable energy now. 

By standing and working together, New Yorkers were able to ban fracking and defeat the Port Ambrose LNG port. However, fracking is taking place in the rest of our nation and the world. Moreover, fossil fuel infrastructure and dirty nuclear power plants continue to be built and operate. New Yorkers need to go to the march to show that we can achieve a 100% renewable and sustainable world if we continue to show up, speak out and work together to demand the kind of energy policy that we want.

I am going to the march because I want to be able to look at my grandchildren and know that I am trying to do something to help bring awareness and mitigate the dangers of climate change so that all of our children will have a chance to inherit a livable and sustainable future. 

I hope you’ll join me at the March for a Clean Energy Revolution in Philadelphia on July 24! It would be fun to march together to see old friends and make new friends and to do something to help transform our nation’s energy policy.
