A Win against Fracking for a Grassroots Campaign in San Benito

November-December, 2014. In election season 2014, members of 350 Santa Cruz went to San Benito County to help local residents with The Coalition to Protect San Benito canvass the county to have Measure J - to ban fracking in San Benito County - passed in November.

Through great grassroots effort, the Measure was passed. Thank you to all of the 350 Santa Cruz community that were involved. Thank you to the others who attended the local fundraiser at Lúpulo Craft Beer House for donating to the campaign and to Lupulo for kindly hosting the event.

For a media report, read this L.A. Times article on the banning of fracking in San Benito County, CA.
