"Dear Governor Cuomo: New Yorkers Against Fracking" Sneak Preview

Q&A With Writer & Director: Jon Bowermaster

The goal of the varied participants, many of whom had never met before this night, was to explain in clear terms the environmental, economic and health risks of fracking and to motivate people to rise up against the practice using a unique blend of music and message.
