The “Dirty Money – Dirty Water Ohio’s Fight for Fair Courts & Home Rule for Fracking” conference will be held April 4th from 12-3pm at the Ohio State University Moritz College of Law in Columbus, Ohio.
Ohio has seen a boom in the storing of fracking wastewater, much of it from neighboring states, and this wastewater includes a mix of toxic chemicals — many of which are harmful to human health. Some communities have responded by trying to limit wastewater dumping, but the Ohio Supreme Court ruled that municipalities have no power to regulate or limit the disposal of fracking waste. Many of the Ohio Supreme Court justices who made this decision received large campaign contributions from fracking companies and other fossil fuel interests.
Attend this free conference to learn why this issue matters and what you can do about it.
Dirty Money – Dirty Water Co-sponsors: Why Courts Matter Ohio, Ohio Fair Courts Working Group, OSU American Constitution Society, the Ecologic Institute, Common Cause Ohio, the Ohio Environmental Council, and the Piper Fund.
