The natural gas industry continues to be exempt from important public health protections such as the Safe Drinking Water Act, even as they expand their drilling, commonly called fracking, in states all across the country.
On Saturday, July 28th, the Sierra Club is joining with dozens of other organizations in a coalition to Stop the Frack Attack. Thousands of people will rally in Washington, D.C. to move our country towards a more sustainable future where drilling for natural gas does not threaten our air and water. We need to share our concerns about fracking with President Obama, Congress, and the EPA to stop the frack attack.
Join us in Washington, D.C. on July 28th -- we need you to speak out against the dangers of fracking.
WHO: You and others who are concerned about the impact of fracking in our communities
WHAT: Stop the Frack Attack Rally and March
WHEN: Saturday, July 28th, Rally begins at 2 p.m., March begins at 3:30 p.m.
WHERE: West Lawn of the Capitol, Washington, D.C. (map)
Don't forget to check out all of the activities in the days leading up to this historic event including trainings and a lobby day.
Hope to see you there,
Director, Beyond Natural Gas Campaign
P.S. Please share this email with friends and family who are concerned about fracking, too!
