Honor The Two Row
The Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign, a partnership between the Onondaga Nation and Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation (NOON), is developing a broad alliance between the Haudenosaunee and their allies in New York and throughout the world. Our statewide advocacy and educational campaign seeks to achieve justice by polishing the chain of friendship established in the first treaty between the Haudenosaunee and Dutch immigrants. Environmental cleanup and preservation are the core components of our campaign. Learn More...
January Fracking Ban Blitz
On January 9, more than 90 Central New Yorkers traveled to Albany with Syracuse Council and Alliance for a Green Economy to tell Governor Cuomo to ban hydrofracking in New York. We joined over 1500 New Yorkers from all over the state. Then, NOON's Ursula Rozum delivered testimony opposing fracking to the New York State Assembly on January 10. On January 11, New Yorkers Against Fracking dropped over 204,000 comments against the new proposed hydrofracking regulations at the NY Department of Environmental Conservation. Keep the pressure on, join us on January 29, for an organizing meeting at the Onondaga Free Library.
