GASP! Whose Air Is it? An Informational Forum on Gas Compressors


GASP! Whose Air Is It? A Conversation About Gas Compressors and Air Quality

Please join us for an evening of presentations on how natural gas infrastructure, particularly compressor stations affect air quality, health, and the environment.

Mothers Out Front, People for a Healthy Environment, and Steuben County League of Women Voters, Sane Energy Project, and Working Films are hosting a night of films, discussion, and story sharing as a part of the YOU ARE HERE tour at The Steele Memorial Library, Monday September 19th, at 6pm.  

You’re invited to this event, which features speakers:

  • Pramilla Malick of Minisink NY
  • Celia Lewis of the Environmental Health Project

In addition, we will show several short films focused on gas and oil infrastructure, public health concerns, policy, and ways that communities are responding. For those of us fighting Dominion's New Market Project, this is an opportunity for us to share our stories and to be connected with other communities in similar straits.

This tour is named after Sane Energy Project’s YOU ARE HERE map, which allows users to see the the shale gas network across the state and zoom in on their own region. The map explains the current status of each project, and enables visitors to connect with the local group that is organizing to stop it. This year they are partnering with Fractracker to transform it into a “story-map,” complete with scrolling chapters of images of residents sharing their personal stories. Kim Fraczek and Patrick Robbins with Sane Energy Project will be at the events to collect these stories and we hope to get you on the map!

Come learn about the issues, watch great films, talk with your neighbors, and find out how you can help protect your community. We look forward to seeing you there!
