How to Use Public Hearings to Beat Oil & Gas

The public process can feel defeating – often times we hear about things when it’s too late, or an oil & gas project is presented as a done deal. Oil & gas companies rely on people feeling this way, so they can move through our democratic process quietly and efficiently.

Because of this, it can be hard to mobilize our friends and neighbors to attend hearings, become educated about development and decide what we what our community to look like. Or maybe you don’t feel as motivated to participate because you tried it before and it didn’t work.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t use the public process to intervene, slow, or even prevent fracking or related industry.

In this webinar presentation you’ll learn effective tools and strategies you can bring to your next public hearing. You’ll learn what you can accomplish with or without a lawyer – and you’ll even be able to bring your questions to a lawyer during this presentation.

Our Presenters:

  • Gillian Graber is the Executive Director for Protect PT

  • Ashley Funk, Community Organizer with Mountain Watershed Association

  • Ryan E. Hamilton Esq. with Hamilton Law, LLC

    I tried to go to the website at the beginning of the video, and it takes me to a movie page called Ghost Pimp. Can you put a link on your page that goes to the site she is talking about?
