thank you pittsburgh!

4 Nov

I posted this on the PSEC blog yesterday. Still feeling good about it, so I thought I’d share. Since the rally, PSEC has been featured in articles in the Pitt News (front page) and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, not to mention the article we were in (with a quote by me!) on the front page of the Pitt News on Monday. Exciting!

Thanks to you the rally was a HUGE success. An incredibly passionate and diverse group came out today, young and old, urban and rural, coming from states as far as California and as close as Ohio. We all came together to protect our constitutional right to clean air, pure water, and a healthy environment and to protest the exploitation of our environment and ourselves by the gas companies.


If you weren’t able to make it today then stay tuned because this is only the beginning. There is much work still to be done and yesterday’s election certainly didn’t make things easier, but this an issue that affects everyone, regardless of age, ethnicity, income, or political affiliation and we at PSEC strongly believe that it’s an issue worth fighting for. In the words of Margaret Meade, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
