Thank you for all you do to fight the harms of fracking and gas development.
Thank you for reading and listening and being informed.
Thank you for supporting leaders in your community that are fighting among crazy conditions and seemingly insurmountable industry pressures.
Thank you for speaking up about the threats and harms of fracking and oil and gas development.
Thank you for providing comfort, dollars, and time to others fighting the harms of fracking.
Being a supporter often feels just as thankless as the work of people leading the charge. It is not. We appreciate all the things you do large and small. Every voice and effort counts. Thank you. You are appreciated and important to us and every leader working to fight the harms of fracking and gas development.
In addition to being grateful for the groundswell of resistance against industry practices run amok, we are also taking a moment this week to also be thankful for some particularly amazing leaders fighting the harms of fracking.
They also often work in isolation and at a great personal sacrifice to do good work. Halt the Harm Network is proud to join some of the friends from FracTracker and the wonderful program they lead celebrating the Community Sentinels.
The Community Sentinel Award for Environmental Stewardship, now in its fourth year, to honor environmental heroes protecting their communities from the harms of the oil and gas industry – from fracking wells to pipelines to export terminals.
We encourage you to support them and jump into the online chorus sending personal thank you thoughts and chats to the winners of the 2018 program.
