DC’s Stop the Frack Attack: The First-Ever National Mobilization Against Fracking

On July 28th, celebrities, community groups, and more than 100 organizations nationwide will join forces at the “Stop the Frack Attack” in Washington, DC, where they will make three demands for Congress:

1. Stop dangerous fracking
2. Close 7 legal loopholes that exempt the oil and gas industry from parts of the Safe Drinking Water, Clean Air, and Clean Water Acts
3. Implement a pathway towards 100% clean renewable energy.

Celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, Pete Seeger, Lois Gibbs, and Margot Kidder will stand alongside community groups and environmental leaders to fight against fracking, a great threat to public health, the environment, and critical natural resources.

Margot Kidder, best known for her role as Lois Lane in Superman, endorsed the action:

"Fracking is proof our addiction to fossil fuels has gone too far.  In the face of this kind of destruction, doing nothing is not an option. I'll be in DC on July 28th because I’m worried about the world my grandchildren will inherit without immediate action. We have to stop the destruction, and we have to do it now."
