New York Crossroads

What: New York Crossroads: Rally to Stop Fracking and Demand Renewable Energy
When: Monday, June 17th, 12pm-3pm
Where: Rally and March in East Capitol Lawn, Albany, NY


My name is Joseph Varon, and I live in West Hempstead, Long Island.

I’m an environmental activist, retired teacher, and native New Yorker, who volunteers with Food & Water Watch.

I’m also an Orthodox Jew, whose faith inspires a reverence for our Earth. On June 17, I’ll be taking the bus to Albany for New York Crossroads, the rally against fracking and for renewable energy.

I love nature and the outdoors, and I’m terrified that fracking could destroy some of our beautiful state’s most precious landscapes.  And, of course, I’m worried about the threat of climate change and how fracking could poison our water, air, and food.

I hope you’ll join me in making New York Crossroads an amazing event.

If you want to arrange a car pool, email Corinne Rosen.

Thank you so much for helping protect our state.
