Please take a minute to read our 2015 Stakeholder Report and see all of the amazing work and victories that your activism and support made possible over the past year. Then please make a tax-deductible gift that will help Mountainkeeper tackle the many challenges ahead in 2016.
We’ve got a lot of momentum to build on, beginning with New York State’s historic fracking ban. Mountainkeeper played a leadership role in making it happen -- with our expert advocacy, political savvy, fierce determination and thousands of grassroots activists like you that kept the pressure on.
Now we’re employing that same effective array of tactics to prevent Big Oil and Gas from circumventing the fracking ban and stem the flood of oil and gas invading our region via a sprawling network of new and expanded pipelines, oil trains, and barges.
And we have proof that -- with your support -- we can keep winning. Just last month we played a key role in convincing Governor Cuomo to veto the Port Ambrose Liquified Natural Gas project, a massive deepwater port proposed off the shore of Long Island that would have threatened coastal communities and marine ecosystems. Once again, Mountainkeeper’s ability to galvanize a public outcry and turn up the political heat was crucial.
There’s no better proof that donations to Mountainkeeper are paying off in real, measurable progress to Free New York from Fossil Fuels!
Be sure to check out page 12 in the Report where we list all the groups we partner with, from the local to the national. Bringing groups of all sizes together and fighting shoulder to shoulder is what Mountainkeeper excels at -- and what will keep us winning for the Catskills. Please make your gift of support today!
As always, the heart of our mission lies here in the Catskills and, in the coming year, we’ll be intensifying our on-the-ground work to protect our spectacular wild places -- including leading a contingent of our grassroots activists to Albany at budget time to be sure our iconic Catskill Park gets the funding it deserves.
We’ve got our work cut out for us. Mountainkeeper is ready to take on the environmental challenges ahead, but only if we have the strong support of generous donors like you.
Please make your tax-deductible gift now and help ensure that we can continue fighting in defense of our environment and communities in 2016.
