Calling all Kids: Speak out Against the Fracking Rush before December 1, 2011

Riverkeeper is launching a Kids Care about fracking campaign and we need your help.  Please forward this message to all the kids you know.

If you are a kid, we are asking you to write to Governor Cuomo and let him know why New York State shouldn’t rush the fracking process. Riverkeeper knows that you deserve the chance to have your voices heard and to demand a healthy environment with clean water to drink. Adult leaders that give industry the green light to frack for natural gas without needed protections will not pay the price of dirty water, air, and land – you will!

Please write the Governor and let him know what clean water means to you and how bad fracking can impact your water. You can include a picture or photo or anything else you think will help express what you have to say.   Riverkeeper will select some of the best letters to feature in our Don’t Frack With NY Water! Campaign, so please send a copy of the letters to us as well at:


20 Secor Rd.

Ossining, NY 10562.

You can write to Governor Cuomo at:

The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo

Governor of New York State

NYS State Capitol Building

Albany, NY 12224

We are accepting letters until December 1, 2011.

Claim your right to a future with clean water!

Your own words are always better, but here are some hints:

Dear Governor Cuomo,

My name is______________.  I am ___ years old and live in ____.  I love water because _____.  I am concerned that bad fracking will destroy my water.  Please do not let that happen.

Yours truly,



Tell Gov. Hochul to block invasive species at the Erie and Champlain canals
