Dream Defenders support The Energy Action Coalition.
Dream Defenders are beyond excited to head to #Powershift2013 this weekend. Disparities in the quality and care of our environment drastically impact communities of color around the country (and world). We must all work to leave environments and communities that allow future generations to live with dignity. — with Mstery'us SwaggaMiss Sharon.
The Energy Action Coalition under the banner, "Power Shift 2013" will be marching through downtown, Pittsburgh, this Monday.
The group will be protesting against fracking and seeking to draw attention to the harm it does to communities.
Communities across Pennsylvania have had their water contaminated by fracking, and the EPA has failed them — dropping its investigations and leaving families without clean water.
"We will be marching to call for a green economy," said Whit Jones, campaign director at the Energy Action Coalition. About 7,000 people have registered to attend the conference that starts today at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, and Mr. Jones expects about 3,000 to 4,000 people to participate in the outdoor events Monday.Read more: http://www.post-gazette.com/...
In typical Dream Defender style, they are not only talking about this issue, they are also doing something about it.
Today, we’re joining a “Clean Water Mob” to bring fresh water to these families, and call for real leadership on fracking -- join the push for both water and justice here: http://www.wearepowershift.org/...
Dream Defenders remember Kendrick Johnson
The parents of a Georgia teenager whose body was found inside a rolled-up wrestling mat at school said Thursday the fact that their son was recently found to be buried without his internal organs is a new reason to suspect signs of foul play were covered by investigators.http://www.cbsnews.com/...
The body of Kendrick Johnson, 17, was found Jan. 11 in South Georgia. Lowndes County sheriff's investigators concluded that he died in a freak accident, falling headfirst into an upright mat and becoming trapped. But Johnson's family believes he was killed and has been pressuring authorities into taking a second look at the case.
