On May 10, 2017, we successfully posted the following letter to Erin Brockovich's Contact Page, feel free to contact her as well.
Today @NoHospitalDwtn connected w/ @ErinBrockovich w/ this letter: https://t.co/zWosZV7sTy Hoping Erin seen, or will see, @LPHmovie as we battle a destructive @MVHealthSystem hospital concept in @CityofUtica / Oneida County.

For almost three years a group of residents in Utica NY has tried to prevent our downtown from being bulldozed for a hospital district. We are now over 4,000 on our Facebook Group called "#NoHospitalDowntown". Our story is also posted on two websites; www.NoHospitalDowntown.com and www.BetterUticaDowntown.com
Small businesses and property owners in a 25-acre downtown neighborhood are threatened with eminent domain, while the hospital owns 64-acres on a campus just 1-3/4 miles away.
Politicians and economic developers, exactly like those in "Little Pink House", are behind this scheme.
Perhaps you'd offer us a word of hope, or maybe more?
Thank you for both your time and consideration.
S.O.S. Utica, NY,

As we post this letter, we're reading this “Little Pink House” Is Like “Erin Brockovich” for Eminent Domain. Please note, #NoHospitalDowntown is not opposed to a new hospital, just the location. Read all the Voices who agree with us.
