Take a stand against fracking – March 15th in Sacramento

annie sartorBy Annie Sartor, Policy and Campaigns Coordinator

Fracking is bad for our health. That’s why we’re rallying against fracking on Saturday, March 15th in Sacramento. Will you join us?

Fracking is a health hazard because it contaminates our water supply with known human carcinogens and endocrine disruptors. These dangerous chemicals enter our water supply in two ways:  

  • First, fracking companies mix industrial chemicals with water, and shoot the mixture deep underground to free oil or gas deposits.
  • And second, contaminated wastewater is dumped directly into rivers and streams.

Don't Frack With Our Health LogoSome of the chemicals used in the process of fracking for oil or natural gas are linked to a range of diseases and disorders, including an increased risk of breast cancer. 

Fracking is a public health issue, plain and simple, and as advocates for women’s health, we will not stand silently by and allow this dangerous practice to continue in California. Take a stand with us this Saturday and say NO to fracking in California.

Join us and 1,000s of other concerned Californians for the largest anti-fracking demonstration in state history.

Here are the details: 

What: Don’t Frack California rally
When: Saturday, March 15th, 1 p.m.
