This benefit - featuring local musicians, actors, poets, and playwrights - will go directly to support the protection of Lancaster County.
In one year's time, the movement to protect Lancaster County from the proposed Atlantic Sunrise pipeline has grown by leaps and bounds. With the help of a dedicated team of volunteers: farmers, landowners, Native Americans tribal leaders, friends, and family - thousands of Lancaster residents have been organized to speak out in support of protecting our county's farms and woodlands.
Your support is needed to protect homes,farms and Native American cultural history in the Susquehanna River Hills. If approved, construction for the pipeline could begin in one years time.
All of the work to stop the pipeline is done a grassroots, shoestring budget, with no grants or money from outside organizations. This movement is as down-home as it gets - a true community movement.

This music is able to leap tall buildings in a single bound and deter pipelines!
3:45 to 4:00 Skit- Pipeline Players.
