Stop the Frack Attack Call in Day

Join the Virtual Lobby Day next Thursday!

Our Stop the Frack Attack lobby day looks like it is turning out to be larger than we thought. In fact, we have so many people signed up to lobby that we’ve had to change our room to a bigger one! Many thanks to our allies on Capitol Hill for making the new room happen. If you are heading to DC early and want to join us, check out the lobby day page on the website.

If you can’t make it in person on Thursday, you can still help Stop the Frack Attack by reaching out to your members of Congress by phone the same day.

It’s easy. Just call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to speak to your member of Congress. Once you are connected, you can tell whoever answers this:

“I am calling to ask for your support for the Fracturing Responsibility and Awareness of Chemicals Act, also known as the FRAC Act. The House bill is H.R. 1084, sponsored by Representatives DeGette, Hinchey and Polis.  The Senate bill is S. 587, sponsored by Senator Casey. Passing this law would repeal the oil and gas industry’s exemption from the Safe Drinking Water Act. This would allow the EPA to regulate fracking’s impacts on our drinking water supply and force the oil and gas industry to publicly disclose the types, amounts, and combinations of chemicals they use in fracking. Will you cosponsor the FRAC Act and support national drinking water protections?”

Please call your member of Congress on Thursday, July 26, and support our grassroots swell of organizers lobbying that day in DC!

See you next week!
