Wednesday, April 19
A free public forum on How Military Jet Noise Impacts Children

United Methodist Church
3705 N. Sherman Avenue, Madison
7 to 9 p.m.

Preview the new Safe Skies Clean Water Coalition video. Participate in a Question & Answer session with experts. Discover how dangerous military jet noise affects children’s development, learning ability, and mental health.

A squadron of nuclear-capable, stealth F-35A fighter jets is expected to roar into Madison within weeks. These planes are 4 times louder than the F-16s they replace.

It’s not too late to take action and try to turn back the F-35s! Plan to attend this event to learn how you can help Protect Our Children.
