Shaleshock 101 Study Group
Every so often, a Shaleshock 101 study group goes into session. Shaleshock 101 is a comprehensive curriculum that covers everything from the basics of Gas Drilling to movement building and strategy. Over the course of five class sessions we’ll cover a broad spectrum of relevant topics. This class is based on a curriculum that began last year to expand the knowledge and capacity of participants to engage in a movement to protect our communities from exploitative drilling. The curriculum we use evolves and changes as it’s updated, fact-checked, and to meet the needs of participants. E-mail email@example.com for more info.
Shaleshock has grown to be one of New York’s prominent movements for protecting ourselves from exploitative gas drilling. It’s a true grassroots movement, built ground up by volunteers–sustained with gifts and small donations. Through our organizing, shaleshock has become a vast network of friends and allies that collaborate and support each other in collective leadership.
The best way to get involved with Volunteer roles is to attend a local meeting. Check out regional groups for more info. Shaleshock as a network hosts monthly meetings/social events.
