Dear IPA Supporter,
I want to invite you to a very cool fundraising event to benefit our work against natural gas fracking in Illinois.
This coming Monday, May 20th IPA is hosting Oscar nominated Director of GASLAND II, Josh Fox, and Sandra Steingraber (Illinoisan and founder of NY’ers Against Fracking) in our IPA regional office to help financially support our organizing.
The event will be this Monday at 4pm in our office located at 510 E. Washington Street, Suite 309, Bloomington IL 61701.
Josh and Sandra are helping us in our grassroots fundraising efforts as we campaign to keep our water and land safe from big energy corporations. Bloomington is the first stop on Josh’s national tour of GASLAND II, premiering at the Normal theatre, in uptown Normal IL at 7pm that same evening – plan to attend!
Since our new environmental organizing campaign began just a few months ago, we’ve organized over 1,000 citizens across Illinois on having our voices heard both in the Legislature and corporate offices. We’ve engaged in six direct actions, ranging from the Governor’s office to the Illinois Petroleum Council and other big energy lobbyists.
But we’re funding the campaign directly through our grassroots fundraising efforts, through contributions from people like you!
It takes money to fight money, and we need to ask you for your help again. Many of our major donors contribute at least $100, and we respectfully ask you consider an amount that’s significant to you. If you can’t make the fundraiser please consider making a donation directly through our website.
We look forward to seeing you for this fundraiser this coming Monday, May 20 at 4pm in our offices. Please RSVP to 309-827-9627 or email@example.com.
