Long Beach: Public Meeting on Fracking

June 12 and 13: Learn more about State Regulations and Fracking. Does the word “fracking” give you the heebie jeebies?

The more I learned about the practice in the Baldwin Hills (see here and here), the more disturbed I became. Get involved in holding corporations accountable for the drilling practices in the Baldwin Hills area by attending one of the upcoming workshops and helping shape future regulation.

The workshops will be held Tuesday, June 12, 7:00 pm: City Council Chambers, 9770 Culver Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232 and Wednesday, June 13, 7:00 pm: Cal State University Long Beach – Student Union Building, 1212 N. Bellflower Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90815
