We want to make this the largest rally in history to Stop the Frack Attack and fight for a sustainable energy future!

The time is NOW to use our collective power to end oil and gas drilling that harms public health, water and air quality, and the climate
  
Please make your plans now to journey to Washington D.C. this summer! 

Buses and other transportation are being arranged so stay tuned for details on this group transport option.

From California to New York, from North Dakota to Texas, people across the country are converging on the U.S. Capitol to tell Congress, the President and the world to end the rush to drill and STOP THE FRACK ATTACK
  
This is the right time and the right place for all of us to take a public stand in the nation’s capital where ultimately the decisions about our nation’s energy future will be made.  We are calling upon Congress and the President to stand with communities who want to protect their land, their health, their water, and their environment and to develop and support sustainable energy sources, not fossil fuels.
  
Instead of pushing for the increased use of oil and gas, elected officials and public agencies must insist that the industry stop dirty and dangerous drilling and PUT COMMUNITIES FIRST.  As a first step, we need them to close loopholes in environmental laws – laws that every other industry must follow. 

Join us on the U.S. Capitol Grounds on July 28th and join community leaders, celebrities and policymakers calling for a truly clean, fossil fuel free energy future.
