From inciting short-term illnesses like nosebleeds, to increasing risks for long-term illnesses like breast cancer, fracking and other forms of extreme extraction continue to endanger the health of communities across the country.
In California, the country’s third largest oil-producing state, the situation is especially dire—extraction operations take place just feet away from where people live and where children play.
Join us for a public forum about the health impacts of extreme oil and gas extraction. Speakers will include individuals from impacted communities, health professionals and scientists.
What: Drilling Down Into Health Impacts: The Effects of Oil and Gas on California’s Communities
When: Monday, April 18, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
