Recent Meeting Summaries
Caitlin Johnson, Organizer with Communities United for Responsible Energy (CURE) – a campaign of the Ohio Organizing Collaborative (OOC) – A shale-focused “listening project” in Carroll County. Listening projects are citizen driven interviews of friends, family and neighbors to collect their experiences – good, bad or neutral – during the shale boom.
CURE’s goal is to train 10-15 local volunteers to help reach a target of 500 Carroll County citizens with a short seven question interview. The responses to the questions – which will be kept anonymous – are to be complied later this summer and shared through a county-wide public meeting.
