Successful Grassroots Summit

We just wrapped up our first Grassroots Summit, designed to bring together citizen and community leaders working on shale gas issues across the region.  The summit was held this past weekend at the McKeever Environmental Learning Center in Sandy Lake, PA, and featured Lois Gibbs, best known for organizing her community of Love Canal and founding Center for Health, Environment, and Justice (CHEJ), Dr. Simona Perry, founder of the Community Awareness and Solutions for Empowerment (c.a.s.e.), and former President of Veterans for Peace, Elliot Adams, as speakers.  We’ll share more updates in the days to come, but in the meantime we wanted to share our group photo.  A big thanks to our steering committee members, our panelists and speakers, and all of the participants who helped to make the summit a big success!
