Inside the Bakken: National Impacts and How You Can Help
Thu, Jul 23, 2015 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM CDT
Most people will never visit the Bakken. But Bakken oil trains will “visit” communities throughout North America on their way to refineries. And because Bakken oil is highly volatile, each one of these trains puts at risk the communities they travel through.
Inside the Bakken, a constant stream of social issues impact the region including housing booms and busts, migration of national and international workers, childhood homelessness, crime and violence.
Join us for an online discussion to learn about the challenges of living in the Bakken, the national impacts of the North Dakota fracking oil boom and what you can do to help.
The webinar will consist of short presentations by the panelists, followed by a Q&A period where attendees can submit questions.

We will record it.
Whether we make the recording public is a question I will put to our panelists. Making it public is my preference.
