Support the residents of Kern County as they stand up to Big Oil.
What: Public Hearing before the Kern County Board of Supervisors
When: Monday, November 9 at 9:00am (Plan to arrive by 7:30am)

Over 75% of the state’s oil production and 95% of its fracking happens in Kern – making it the highest oil-producing county in the U.S. These operations have had profoundly negative effects on the surrounding communities and will continue to worsen the drought and exacerbate climate change.
More than 290,000 residents in Kern County live within one mile of an oil or gas well – most of whom are people of color that are already without clean water or clean air.
To make matters worse, the Board of Supervisors is proposing a new industry zoning ordinance to fast track new oil drilling for the next 25 years. The ordinance promotes fracking and drilling at the expense of community health, safe food, agricultural jobs and the environment.
The residents of Kern County are joining together to oppose the ordinance and they’re asking people from around the state to stand with them as they take a stand against Big Oil in partnership with The Center on Race, Poverty & the Environment.
Your presence will send a strong signal to the oil industry and local officials that California is watching and that we oppose the harmful expansion of oil and gas drilling.
Look forward to seeing you there!
