Fracking and drilling associated with fracking pose a direct and immediate threat to the drinking water, air, climate, food, health and economies of communities across the United States. Americans Against Fracking is comprised of entities dedicated to banning drilling and fracking for oil and natural gas in order to protect our shared vital resources for future generations.
Our goal, quite simply, is to ban fracking. To that end, we support federal, state and local efforts to ban fracking and to stop practices that facilitate fracking like natural gas exports, frac sand mining and the construction of pipelines.
From halting plans to open the Delaware River to fracking, to passing over 250 municipal measures against the practice, the movement to protect Americans from fracking has won significant victories. Regulations alone won’t protect us from this toxic, polluting process—we need to ban fracking now.
This is a coalition for any organization, group, business or institution that supports a national ban on fracking. We welcome any local, state, or national:
• Civic groups
• Faith institutions
• Hospitals or other health institutions
• Professional associations
• Labor unions
• Political clubs
• Environmental organizations
• Outdoors groups
• Social justice groups
• Farms, restaurants, breweries and other food producers
