WE WILL BE PROVIDING CHILDCARE, SO BRING YOUR AWESOME CHILDREN!

The 2013 FRACKTIVIST CONFERENCE, a collaborative regional effort, is being organized by the TN Chapter of the Sierra Club along with a plethora of other awesome organizations (listed here). The conference will be taking place at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville from September 13-15. We will also be graciously hosted for most meals and sleeping arrangements by the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church, which is a little over a mile away from campus. Inexpensive public transportation is available for back and forth trips or folks can take a 30 minutes stroll to reach their destination.

From the frac sand mining impacted communities in WI and MN to the newly affected people in GA and FL, the many issues related to hydraulic fracturing are affecting people all across this splendid country! We are all connected in this struggle.

Our intention for this conference is to educate attendees about the variety of elements regarding this extraction process from frac sand mining to transportation to chemical proppants to drilling & storage to methane migration to burning and beyond. We will also have time to share our victories and strategize about how to become a more effective movement to better regulate or put an end to fossil foolishness (depending on your preference)!

The movement placing a critical eye on all forms of extreme energy extraction on this planet, wresting control from multinational corporations, and giving the power back to the people is becoming something truly beautiful! It is an honor to be a part of it, as so MANY of us are.  We are rising! Please join us for another opportunity to combine struggles and strengthen our efforts. We look forward to seeing you in Knoxville in September.   :-)
