Workshop: How is gas infrastructure affecting your community?

  • Immanuel United Church of Christ 1905 Edmondson Avenue Catonsville, MD, 21228 United States (map)

Chesapeake PSR is co-sponsoring a workshop on how gas industry infrastructure affects communities.

The gas industry is not only pumping gas from wells, but storing and delivering it with extensive infrastructure: pipelines, compressor stations, storage facilities, LNG terminals and gas-power plants. How is this heavy industry affecting your community?

Join us on Saturday, December 3, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., at Immanuel United Church of Christ, 1905 Edmondson Avenue, in Catonsville, Md. The event is free and open to all. (After you register, you have the option of purchasing lunch for $9.) 

You will hear and discuss the health, environmental and community disruption effects of gas infrastructure. Our frontline communities are paying for dirty energy with our health and the ever-growing threat of the climate crisis. Participants will discuss industry infrastructure and share their experiences with others whose communities are at risk – a community of communities.

The workshop is sponsored by Maryland Environmental Health Network, Chesapeake Physicians for Social Responsibility, Chesapeake Climate Action Network, HoCo Climate Change, Waterkeepers Chesapeake, We Are Cove Point and other concerned individuals.

We hope to see you there!
