Bring the kids, this march is in support of the opening of Matt Damon's film "Promised Land" which takes a look at how fracking is causing strife & division in communities. ["Promised Land" opens on Jan. 4], this march is a grassroots effort to raise awareness. We need to support films like these that are, at the very least, a means to open the fracking conversation with many more people across the US.

Keynote speaker: former Pittsburgh council member, Doug Shields.

Join a great Promised Land-movie-related rally: "March to the Promised Land Rally" sponsored by Frackfree America National Coalition (based in Youngstown) http://www.frackfreeamerica.org/

The event will assemble* near the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Youngstown (UUYO), 1105 Elm St. (Elm & Illinois), Youngstown, Ohio 44505, and other locations to be determined. Great speakers and Promised Land movie extras are scheduled to appear at the rally! The rally keynote speaker will be Douglas Shields, who is featured in Gasland filmmaker Josh Fox's film "The Sky is Pink" and is a former Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania City Council President, who in 2010 sponsored and secured the first ban of shale gas extraction drilling in the city of Pittsburgh.

Matt Damon's and John Krasinski's new movie "Promised Land" will be opening soon on December 28 (select locations) and January 4 nationwide. The film posters have the conversation-starting tagline, "What's your price?..."

Frackfree America encourages everyone to see the movie, Promised Land, when it comes to a theater in your area.
