ONGOING VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
Berks Gas Truth does LOTS of tabling events, screenings, and other special events in the region. We’re always looking for additional ways to get the word out about fracking. And we could use help with our “back room” operations. Here are just a few of the volunteer opportunities that might interest you.
- Volunteer at Berks Gas Truth tabling events – We participate in many festivals and other special events in the region and always appreciate help working our table. Upcoming events are listed on our calendar.
- Organize screenings of documentaries on fracking – Film screenings are a great way of introducing the public to the issues surrounding fracking. We’re always happy to do screenings and take audience questions. Contact Karen Feridun if you’re interested in organizing a screening in your community.
- Write letters to the editor – The letters to the editor page of just about any newspaper is always among the most-read sections. Every paper has its rules about the letters they publish. Some papers rarely print letters unrelated to articles they’ve published. If you read the paper regularly and spot items related to fracking, submit a response and definitely let us know so we can try to get others to respond, as well.
- Comment online on articles you see on fracking in the press. Unlike letters to the editor, online comments are not limited to a strict word count. A comment is also an immediate response that is likely to be seen by the reporter and the growing number of people who their news online.
