Josh Fox, the activist and director of the Oscar nominated 2010 documentary, Gasland, and anti-pipeline activists nationwide will spotlight the growing national opposition to new Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) appointments by the Trump Administration.

Currently, only two out of five Commissioner positions are filled at FERC, which means the Administration would greatly impact FERC's direction with new appointments. Activists will outline the push against any new FERC commissioners and highlight the concerns with FERC's regulatory oversight.
