Arctic Refuge Defense Campaign Launch!
Passionate about protecting wild spaces, indigenous rights, and preventing climate change? Please join us at the
Kick-Off Meeting for the Arctic Refuge Defense Campaign!
Thursday, September 19th, 7-8 PM
Howe Library, Mayer Room
13th South Street, Hanover, NH 03755
In 2017, the tax bill contained a provision that opened up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in northern Alaska for oil and gas drilling. The Arctic Refuge is one of the largest and most intact ecosystems on planet earth, sustaining millions of birds, over 250 animal species (including polar bears, wolves, and enormous caribou herds), as well as the nine thousand Indigenous Peoples of the Gwich’in nation.
Opening up the Arctic Refuge to oil and gas development would be catastrophic. It would not only imperil the amazing landscapes and biodiversity in the region, but would also contribute to climate change, and jeopardize a rich culture that has thrived for thousands of years. This is an attack on both the environment and on human rights.
The good news, is that it doesn’t have to be this way. We can preserve our spaces of wild natural beauty. We can protect this vital and largely pristine ecosystem. We can ensure the survival of the birds, polar bears, caribou, and the Gwich’in peoples’ way of life. Together, we can stop drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Join other concerned residents and local organizations Thursday night for a fun event to learn more about the campaign, help us strategize how to win, and take action!
