Ban Fracking in California — If all Californians remind Jerry that he works for us, not oil and gas, he won’t be able to ignore us.
Brenna Norton is the Southern California Organizer for Food & Water Watch. Based in Los Angeles, she works with local communities and statewide organizations to ban the practice of hydraulic fracturing in California. She also is working to stop a massive corporate water grab scheme that would force water rate hikes for Southern Californians and would divert funds from projects that can make our water supply more reliable. Her background is in legislative campaigning and community and electoral organizing. Before working for Food & Water Watch, Brenna worked as a Grassroots Organizer for the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition on federal food and farm policy. She has worked for a wide range of nonprofits, managed 47 precincts and multiple field offices for the 2008 presidential campaign, and worked in a Senate committee office. She holds a degree from Scripps College in Political Science, International Relations, and a minor in history and a certificate in campaign management from George Washington University. Brenna is a California native, passionate about protecting our food and water resources and building strong community based campaigns.
Walter Brasch: Long before the price of gas and oil began to plummet, socially conscious churches, universities, non-profit organizations, and local governments began to divest themselves of fossil fuel stock and shock the fossil fuel industry to understand the environmental and public health concerns.
