About the facilitators:

The FANG Collective has been resisting Spectra's fracked-gas pipeline expansions for three years. FANG was the first organization to carry out direct actions targeting Spectra's "AIM" project in 2014. Since then, their group continued to grow and now host the NVDA centric campaigns: StopSpectra, TakeOnTextron, NoDAPLSolidarity, NoNewPowerplant. NoLNGinPVD, as well as provide trainings --- Intro to NVDA, Social Media in Action, Jail Support/Police Liaisoning, Security Culture, and Kingian Nonviolence.

FANG believes in empowering and supporting frontline communities to learn and develop the skills they identify as effective in their own campaigns. This has led to meaningful partnerships and collective resistance to fracked gas infrastructure along the East Coast.
