WOW Dems July General Meeting – Update: Fracking in Texas – Thursday, July 14, 2016

Sharon WilsonOur next General Meeting will be held Thursday, July 14, 2016 at the Environmental Education Center. Our speaker will be Sharon Wilson, well-known environmental activist, Gulf regional organizer for the Texas Oil and Gas Accountability Project. Sharon is considered the leading citizen expert on the Barnett Shale and the go-to person whether it’s top EPA officials, major news networks, national environmental organizations, or residents facing the shock of eminent domain and the devastating effects of natural gas development in their own backyards.

She will give an overview of fracking in Texas and speak on the HB40 bill which severely restricts the ability of Texas towns to regulate local oil and gas drilling. She will also speak on the health and environmental impact of fracking and methane gas.

We want to honor trauma surgeon Dr. Brian Williams, who gave his all and spoke from his heart after treating many injured Dallas police officers at Parkland Hospital. Listen to his poignant words here.  We will be  collecting donations of new unused homemade or newly purchased items such as slippers, pillows, quilts, robes, stuffed animals or dolls. We will bring them to Parkland Hospital this weekend to say thank you to Dr. Williams for his work, and for his strong message on need for open dialog on race relations. Cash donations will also be helpful. Thank you! 

Meet and greet: 6:30 pm. Program 6:45 pm

Plano Environmental Education Center 4116 W Plano Parkway Plano Texas 75093
