This change.org petition was crafted by a Friend along with some other faith based networks. The petition concerns frac-sand mining in the driftless area and the proposed taconite mine in northern Wisconsin near the Bad River Reservation. With all the issues swirling around nowadays, this one speaks loudly to the author, being a born and raised Wisconsinite and in love with these areas of the state. The petition also touches on areas of concern other than the usual scientific or economic debates that receive the most attention in hearings, the press, etc.
Wisconsin Friends Action Network has signed on as one of the PILLARS OF SUPPORT.
Here’s a link to the petition if you are moved to add your name, or bring it to your own Meeting or congregation to sign onto as a group: www.change.org/p/wi-governor-candidates-bring-ethics-to-wisconsin-mining
