|Be a part of history and attend the Rally to Stop Fracked Gas Exports: Cove Point & Beyond!|
Thanks to over 5,000 activists, we helped flood the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) office with letters about the dirty and dangerous proposed Cove Point liquefied natural gas facility. Now it's time to deliver our message in person.
On July 13, thousands will gather at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. for the Rally to Stop Fracked Gas Exports: Cove Point and Beyond. Will you be there, too?
For far too long, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has put the interests of the oil and gas industry above our health, safety and climate. This summer, FERC will decide if the Cove Point facility can move forward despite the detrimental consequences -- more fracking in the Marcellus Shale region, endangering communities near the proposed facility, and more air, water, and climate pollution.
Once you register, look for a confirmation email with a link to a transportation board and survey to coordinate your travel. Activists from organizations all over the country will be a part of this historic day and are making carpooling and busing arrangements to be there.
