Mothers Out Front San Francisco community team members, Tina Martin and Kathie Piccagli, attended a state regulatory hearing in Oakland on March 9th regarding setbacks for new oil and gas drilling and fracking operations. At the last CalGEM Public Health Pre-Rulemaking Workshop before California’s shelter-in-place order took effect, they joined Last Chance Alliance allies to advocate for a 2500-foot health-and-safety buffer zone to separate toxic drilling from schools, playgrounds, homes, and hospitals, etc. To help make their case, they displayed a vivid poster of a child swinging near oil derricks, painted by Mothers Out Front South Bay team member Susan Butler-Graham.
Thanks to everyone who spoke up to protect the health of our communities and the future of all children!
