YOU asked for it...... we listened!
Join us for a special presentation of Split Estate, the award- winning documentary that presents a riveting look at a David vs. Goliath confrontation unfolding in communities thought the United States and particularly in the north Texas Barnett Shale.

We will also have a special presentation by Amy Mall, Senior Policy Analyst with the Natural Resources Defense Council, who has publicly stated, "Split Estate tells a powerful story about Americans living with the dirty side of oil and gas development in their own backyards."

Natural gas is being sold to the American public as the answer to all of our energy woes. It's championed by industry and politicians on both sides of the aisle as "the clean fossil fuel," and "the bridge fuel," as we look to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and our dependence on foreign oil.
In the midst of the hype, Split Estate shows there is no such thing as a "clean" fossil fuel. Nor is there clean extraction, as citizens on the front lines of the drilling boom will attest


As the time honored saying goes, you can be a part of the solution or continue to be a part of the problem. Only by working together for the common good can we even begin to protect our communities from unwanted and/or unneeded industrial activities that continue to harm the air we breathe or the water needed to sustain our quality of life.

Please join with us to help protect our future and the continued safety of our families BY FORWARDING THIS EMAIL to your school administrators, your teachers, your church leaders, the PTA and other community contacts. Ask them to learn how this expanding heavy industrial activity called gas drilling is affecting our most vulnerable citizens....our children!
