Mothers Against Drilling in Our Neighborhoods (MADION) was the first community group in Ohio to get a community bill of rights passed by citizen initiative in 2012. The group was formed by Ohio moms whose mission was to preserve the health and safety of our children from the harmful effects of drilling for oil and gas in our neighborhoods. Although the law was challenged by corporate oil/gas corporations and their “rights” were upheld by the courts over the people’s law to prohibit drilling, no new oil/gas well shave been drilled in the city since the passage of the CBOR.
