What You Can Do

What Can YOU Do to Protect Your Community?

  1. Join CWFNC’s FrackUpdates list today! This is a bi-weekly e-mail alert with state and national news and ways to take action.
  2. Join a local organization working to prevent fracking from impacting NC residents. Visit FrackFreeNC.org to find out more about groups already working to keep NC free from fracking!
  3. Report contacts from oil and gas companies seeking to lease YOUR land for fracking to James Robinson, Research and Policy Associate at RAFI, (919) 542-1316 ext. 209 or james@rafiusa.org
  4. Form a group and host a community meeting or a GASLAND screening to raise awareness! Environmental justice starts when you and a few other people meet and talk about the problems you have in common, problems that make it difficult to live and work in your community.
  5. Explore our fracking resources
  6. Work to get a local resolution passed to ban fracking in your town
  7. Write a letter to the editor of YOUR local paper
