March with Breast Cancer Action to Demand a Fracking Ban

Alex's Sign_up_MarchBreast Cancer Action will soon join thousands of people in the streets of Philadelphia before the Democratic National Convention to shine a light on one of the most critical issues of our time: the harmful health impacts from fracking and other forms of dangerous drilling.

We need to demand that our elected leaders protect public health from these toxic processes that use chemicals linked to breast cancer. Read more about why we’re marching here.

What to Bring: It is expected to be a very hot day in Philly. Please bring a reusable water bottle to the march. Water tanks for filling up will be provided at the beginning, middle, and end of the march. Bring snacks to keep you going!

Transportation & Parking: Click here for detailed information on arriving by bus, public transportation or car.

Attire: Wear weather appropriate clothing. Bring sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, etc. We’ll be marching about 1 mile, so wear comfortable shoes. Please make every effort to wear a red shirt to the march—we want to stand out as Breast Cancer Action members. Upon arrival, please try to find me.  I will give you one of our well-known “Cancer Sucks” buttons to wear and a “Don’t Frack With Our Health” sign if you wish to carry one. Breast Cancer Action is leading and marching with the Health contingent, in which some people will be wearing medical-like garb. If you identify as a health professional or scientist, please feel free to also wear a stethoscope, scrubs, white lab coat, etc.

Accessibility: There will be a system to help people with mobility challenges. There will be vans trailing the march, please email accessibility@cleanenergymarch.org if you would like to ride in one of these vans.  For those who aren’t able to march but would like to participate in the closing action, there is a subway line that runs directly under march and will drop you off 500 ft from Independence Hall where the action will be taking place.

Guests: Bring your friends and family members. This is a family-friendly march. The more people, the better!
