Right to Refuse: When Community Rights and Corporate Rights Conflict and What to Do Next

what’s happening?

Whether it is a pipeline, a fracked gas well, or an incinerator, there are countless examples of corporations moving projects forward despite community resistance and environmental harms. Why? How has law evolved to protect corporate interests and what are a community’s options? What is a Home Rule campaign and why is it necessary? Explore these questions and more with a weekend with front-line organizers from across Pennsylvania.

This is a workshop for those engaged in protecting their community from environmental threats for education and strategic planning. Facilitators are CELDF’s Pennsylvania Community Organizer Chad Nicholson, joined by Malinda Clatterbuck of Lancaster County, and Dianne Herrin of West Chester Borough.
