National Stop the Frack Attack network to host People’s Forum in Washington, DC
WASHINGTON, DC – As the Department of Interior takes public comment on its industry-influenced fracking proposal and the U.S. Senate holds a series of hearings on the natural gas industry, people from across the country who are directly affected by irresponsible fracking and drilling will have an opportunity to share their stories as part of the Stop the Frack Attack People’s Forum, organized by Earthjustice, Earthworks and Catskill Citizens for Safe Energy.
Policymakers and members of the media are invited to hear firsthand accounts of lives disrupted by a deregulated industry in the midst of a fracking-enabled oil and gas drilling rush.
Stop the Frack Attack is a national network of people, communities and organizations fighting against dirty and unsafe fracking.
People impacted by fracking and drilling will travel to Washington, DC to share their stories with policymakers and members of the media
Residents from around the country impacted by the fracking-enabled oil and gas drilling rush and associated industrial activities. (Full list of participants and bios available upon request)
