Join New York Faith Leaders on October 29th for Statewide Vigils to Ban Fracking! 
Hello Friends:

Some of the most powerful social change movements have been fueled by faith. The movement to ban fracking in New York is no exception.  Please join us on Monday, October 29 for "A Spiritual Call to Ban Fracking: Vigils to Protect Our Sacred Land & Water."

Faith is a strong, deeply held force that can inspire people to action, articulating messages, rich with shared values and common virtues, that strike a chord with all of us. Over 300 interfaith leaders from across New York have joined us in declaring that fracking is a moral issue.  Will you join their call on October 29th at a vigil near you?  

This year, the members of our coalition, New Yorkers Against Fracking, have been hard at work building a movement with the power to defeat the oil & gas industry. This summer, with your help, we recruited more than 1,000 businesses against fracking. Our coalition now stands at over 170 members, and on October 29 we are announcing that another powerful constituency — faith leaders and their congregations — is also asking Governor Cuomo to ban fracking in New York.

Thanks for all you do!

David, John, Eric, Renee, Corinne, Wes, Alex, Rita, Isaac, Kathy and the rest of the NYAF Regional Team
