Fighting for Our Future rally

A total of 35 organizations across Pennsylvania will join together at 10 a.m. on March 9th to hold a rally to speak out against House Bill 1100. 

That bill, passed by the General Assembly on Feb. 4, offers billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies to the fracked gas and petrochemical industries over the next 30 years. During the rally, a mix of state legislators and environmental leaders will urge Gov. Tom Wolf to veto this dangerous bill, and we will urge the General Assembly not to attempt to override that veto. 

What: A rally on the steps of the Capitol Rotunda to protest House Bill 1100, which offers billions in taxpayer subsidies to the fracked gas and petrochemical industries. 

Who: PennFuture, Clean Air Council, PennEnvironment, Sierra Club - Pennsylvania Chapter, Conservation Voters of Pa., The Climate Reality Project, and over 30 other environmental advocacy organizations across Pennsylvania. 

Speakers: Sen. Katie Muth, Rep. Sara Innamorato, PennFuture President and CEO Jacquelyn Bonomo, Center for Coalfield Justice Executive Director Veronica Coptis, PennEnvironment Deputy Director Ashleigh Deemer, Rabbi Daniel Swartz of Temple Hesed in Scranton, and Briann Moye, an environmental justice organizer with One Pennsylvania. 

When: Monday, March 9th at 10 a.m. 

Where: Main Capitol Rotunda, Pennsylvania State Capitol Complex, 501 N. Third St., Harrisburg, PA 17101
