Clean Air Council-Southwestern Pennsylvania field organizer, Board member with Center for Coalfield Justice, POPCO, & Protect PT
My story began out of necessity. The need to protect families, children and communities like mine from the mistruths, health impacts and the harms industry has caused us. During trips to visit legislators both locally, in our state and nations capital I wanted those in power to have a first-hand account of what it is like to live and grow up in the shale fields of Southwestern Pennsylvania. I started “Frackland Tours from my home to give those who are interested a first- hand opportunity to hear and see impacted residents’ stories, view well pads and oil and gas infrastructure.
