Families in New York are acting to stop The New Market Dominion pipeline and the infrastructure that is being built to support it (compressor stations).

Linda Finch of Sullivanville, NY testifies at a public hearing about why the Dominion compressor station's air quality application should be denied - for the safety of her family and community.
