Can you help us get the Youngstown Community Bill of Rights passed? The 2015 Election Day is rapidly approaching and we need your help in passing the Community Bill of Rights Charter Amendment which asserts our unalienable rights to breathe drink pure water clean air,  and exercise local control to ensure a safe and healthy community now and in the future.

We are seeking your help and there are many ways to support the Bill of Rights effort.

In May of 2013, the first time it was on the ballot, the CBR garnered 43% of the vote; in November, it was endorsed by 45% of the voters; and in May 2014,  46% supported the bill. Given increased publicity about the hazards of hydraulic fracturing - to say nothing of the recent spate of earthquakes near Poland, Ohio - we are quite confident that this time the public is ready to support one's right to clean water, clean air, and local control.

We want to finance a direct mail campaign that will cost about $5,000. Two small billboards will total $1,500 - $1,800 dollars for the month remaining before the election. And much-needed radio time, to be effective, would start at $500. During the last election, our opponents spent over $81,000 against the initiative; our treasury - built with small donations and bake sale proceeds - stands at about $1500.

Please consider supporting the hard work that the FrackFree Mahoning Valley activists have been doing and will continue to do until this charter amendment is passed. No one in the group is paid for any of the countless hours they have spent gathering information, knocking on doors, talking to citizens, educating the public about the issue, designing literature, etc.

Any amount would be helpful, of course, but we are asking you to dig deep and help us get this done.

Please visit our two websites, protectyoungstown.org and frackfreeamerica.org, both of which have been developed and are maintained completely by volunteers.

We hope you share our conviction that allowing fracking and injection wells in the city of Youngstown would be a monumental mistake, and that the only way we can protect Meander Reservoir, Mill Creek Park, and the city itself from this real threat is to pass the Community Bill of Rights = VOTE "YES" on the Nov 3, 2015 ballot.

Donations may be mailed also: Checks can be made out to the Community Bill of Rights Committee and sent to PO Box 43, Youngstown, OH 44501.
