NYAF Rally at the NYS Fair

The campaign to ban fracking is kicking into even higher gear! Governor Cuomo is ramping up his events and appearances across the state this summer. We’ve rallied outside of his many appearances all across the state, and the NYS Fair is one of the most important opportunities we have. Every year, Governor Cuomo attends the first day of the great New York State Fair – as the day is coined, “Governors Day” – and every year we rally outside his appearance to make our voices heard. Let’s make this year’s rally even bigger! We are calling on hundreds of people from all corners of upstate NY to join us this year.

The Fair is a prime opportunity to send a message to Governor Cuomo that the movement calling for a statewide ban on fracking is strong and growing. The New York Fair is also an opportunity to talk about protecting farming, agriculture, wineries, breweries and tourism – the fabric of New York’s economy.

Join us on Thursday, August 21st from 11am to 3pm outside the NY StateFair Main entrance to rally with hundreds of NewYorkers against fracking from across the state. We’ll stand together to say no to fracking and yes to a renewable energy economy that protects our most vital resources, public health and agriculture.

What: Rally to Ban Fracking and Protect NY Farms, Agriculture and Tourism with a swift transition to Renewable Energy- Outside Governor Cuomo’s Appearance on “Governor’s Day” at The Great New York State Fair!
