On May 22, Governor Cuomo is attending the Democratic Convention on Long Island– and we must be there in full force demanding a ban on fracking. This is a very important event for Cuomo – and for New Yorkers fighting to protect our state from fracking. Cuomo will describe his vision for New York’s future – and we must show him the power of the movement demanding it be frack-free.
Cuomo will ask New Yorkers for their support – and New Yorkers will call on him to ban fracking and stop fracking infrastructure, including the Port Ambrose liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility off the coast of scenic Long Beach.
