With individual cities banning fracking across New York state--most recently Syracuse and Albany!--we need to continue pressuring Governor Cuomo more than ever for a statewide ban.
There is something easy you can do RIGHT NOW to help pressure Governor Cuomo to ban fracking, which will take less than a minute of your time: post this video on Governor Cuomo’s Facebook pages.

Cuomo has two Facebook pages (post it on both!):
