North Braddock Residents For Our Future

In late 2013, I began spending the majority of my free time fighting against proposed frack wells in North Braddock. After more than seven years, U.S. Steel announced they were cancelling their lease to allow fracking at Edgar Thomson. This was a victory! Community members stood up to legacy corporate interests and the oil and gas industry. Unfortunately, our neighborhood is rife with injustices, inequities poor air quality that needs to be addressed and dismantled.
