In 2014, governor cuomo banned fracking in the state of new york to protect our health and safety… However…

Since this grassroots victory, we’ve seen a massive buildout of fracking infrastructure in New York State. It’s important to keep the big picture in mind that just because we banned one part of the process, doesn’t mean we actually banned fracking.


In 2014, New York banned fracking. But the fight isn’t over. Fracking infrastructure is still being built across the state. Fracking infrastructure leaks methane, a potent greenhouse gas, and exposes communities to toxic air pollution. So, what are New Yorkers doing? FIGHTING BACK! Join the fight! Get the skills needed to shut down gas infrastructure in your community, and build the renewable world we know is possible. RSVP to an event near you:

Millennium filed a SLAPP suit (A Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation that is intended to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition.) against Scott Martens claiming he caused irreparable harm when he filmed crews begin to clear trees for the VLP in early December. Scott was there because the tree clearing threatened the habitat of endangered bald eagles.
Governor Andrew Cuomo has proposed a 16 megawatt fracked gas power plant in the Sheridan Hollow community to power and heat Empire State Plaza, the massive 89-acre Albany capitol-building complex where the Governor and his administration work from daily.
