Climate Action Alliance of the Valley member Charlie Strickler was among the dozen people who made it through an “…18-day water-only fast in front of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to raise awareness of the agency’s contribution to worsening climate change and to harming the health and well-being of frontline communities where these projects are built.”
