Welcome

The Campaign For

The Columbus Community Bill of Rights

We began our latest initiative on Monday, June 26th, 2017 to get our Columbus Community Bill of Rights ordinance on the local ballot for the November 2018 election.

Stay tuned to our newsletter for updates as we continue to engage with city government, and circulate our petitions to Columbus city voters over the next 12 months.

Our Work

Columbus Residents are working to ensure safe drinking water, clean air, and safe soil in the City of Columbus.

There are 13 injection wells in the Columbus Area water supply, where radioactive and toxic liquid waste from unconventional natural gas extraction (shale gas, hydrofracking), is being injected into the earth, with great potential for migration into our water supply.

Within the City of Columbus, on the banks of the Alum Creek, the Ohio EPA has permitted potentially highly radioactive shale gas solid waste to be processed, and "beneficially" used, without any required radioactive testing.

In Ohio, State agencies have complete jurisdiction over Oil and Gas permits to Drill and Dispose the liquid and solid hazardous Waste. At the same time, Columbus residents have No say in what the State permits in their own backyard.

The Columbus Community Bill of Rights is change to the legislative language of the City of Columbus. This rights-based language will give Columbus residents Local Control over the extraction of hydrocarbons; and protect the unalienable rights for Pure Water, Clean Air, and Safe Soil, free from "toxins, carcinogens, radioactive substances, and other substances known to cause harm to health", in the City of Columbus.

When enough valid Columbus Voter signatures are obtained, the Columbus Community Bill of Rights will be placed on the next Columbus Municipal Election Ballot.
