That Ain’t Right!
It just ain’t right…during the 2011-2012 legislative session, the North Carolina General Assembly has slashed funding to protect our land, air, and water; opened up our state to fracking which could poison our drinking water, and rolled back decades of protections that kept our communities clean and people safe, making North Carolina a great place to live, work, and play.
We need your help to tell our decision-makers that they must do better.
North Carolina has been a national leader in making wise decisions about our future. Right now our elected leaders are taking us in the wrong direction, but we need to remind them that they need to stand up for us, not special interests. We don’t have to choose between creating good jobs and having clean water to drink and air to breathe.
In 2011 and 2012, our legislators caved in to special interest lobbyists, like the big oil and gas companies that fought to open up our state to hydraulic fracturing—a process which has been linked to contaminated drinking water and other impacts. The legislature is letting special interests and polluters write their own rules, and that’s irresponsible and unfair to the rest of us.
Your voice can make a difference!
Sign up now to tell our decision-makers they need to do a better job! We’ll keep you informed about events and public hearings on the issues you care about, like fracking. We’ll let you know when key decisions are being made at the legislature next year, and how you can help.
We need your help to make all of our voices louder—to protect our air, water, and land from the special interests that don’t have our best interests at heart.
Whether you are interested in stopping fracking, ensuring clean water, protecting our coast and mountains, or clean air for your children to breathe, you know our leaders need to make better decisions…Tell them they don’t have to choose between creating good jobs and protecting our land, air and water – the things that make North Carolina great.
