From the "Off+On" organization:

"A year ago we joined thousands of fractivists from across the country at the People's Climate March in New York City. We marched alongside folks who came from the shalefields of America and know first hand what it's like to live life on the fossil fuel chopping block. They came from all over filling block after city block joining 400,000 people calling for the end of the fossil fuel era and for a transition to 100% renewable energy. 
"On Sept. 10, New Yorkers will have another chance to be a part of history. A group of leaders from across the climate movement are hosting a major event to lay out the strategy for organizing through the Paris climate talks and beyond. The event is called 'On/Off' -- because our main task is to turn off the dirty power of the past, and turn on the renewable energy that will empower our communities.

"The event is at the Brooklyn Academy of Music at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 10. Tickets are sliding scale, pay what you can -- click here to get yours:

"The New York fracking ban was an incredible victory for science and a testament to the power of grassroots organizing, but the fight isn't over yet.

"Fracked gas infrastructure projects like pipelines, compressor stations and power plants threaten the health and safety of communities all over the state. Dangerous bomb trains carrying crude oil run through the backyards of New Yorkers from Buffalo to Albany up towards Plattsburgh and down the Hudson.  Super storms and rising sea levels threaten our coasts. 

"We can ban fracking here and still lose everything we love to climate change.
The only true ban on fracking is to replace the fuel, make fracked gas and other fossil fuels obsolete."
