Film: Dear Governor Cuomo
Dear Governor Cuomo is a concert protest film aimed at influencing New York State's decision on hydraulic fracturing - fracking, to be a NO. Featuring local activists including Mark Ruffalo, Melissa Leo, Natalie Merchant, Pete Seeger, Citizen Cope and scientists like Sandra Steingraber. The film lays out the science and facts and encourages the governor to join the anti-fracking majority in his state. Though focused on the issue in New York, the education, and incredible music, are relevant in the 34 states that already allow fracking.

Location: Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Catskills, 320 Sawkill Road, Kingston, NY
