We need your help! Join us in Albany to talk to state legislators about fracking, the improper handling of its waste, and the need for an official moratorium and comprehensive health impact assessment.

During this lobby day dedicated exclusively to fracking, Riverkeeper and partner organizations will be advocating for measures including a fracking moratorium and bans on the use of oil and natural gas waste for road-spreading and the disposal of this waste at New York landfills and wastewater treatment facilities.

After breakfast and an issues briefing, you will join a group of fellow advocates for visits with several legislators and staff to discuss key fracking bills now before the state legislature.

Register today. Please see hydrofracking@citizenscampaign.org for questions about coordinating travel.
