Welcome to the Lobby Day page for Stop the Frack Attack!
Here you will find all of the resources you need for our day of lobbying on Thursday, July 26th. We have information on how to set up a meeting with your representative, tips for meeting with representatives and other useful information.
For those of you that can’t be with us in person on the 26th, please click here for information on the Stop the Frack Attack Call In Day. We need your help to magnify the efforts of the those of us that are in DC.
For those of you that are heading to DC for our in-person lobby day, we are counting on you to set up meetings with your members of Congress. Once you have confirmed an appointment with your representative, please e-mail Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org and fill out our form at http://www.stopthefrackattack.org/lobby-day-sign-up/
We have two lobby trainings set up, but you only need to come to one. The first is July 25th from 6:30-8:00pm at the Sierra Club office at 50 F Street NW, 8th Floor Washington, DC. The second is at 8:30 am on July 26th in the Cannon Caucus room (located in the Cannon House Office building First St and Independence Ave SE) , which will also be the space where we gather to pick up materials before you head to your meetings.
Our “home base” for the day will be the Western Organization of Resources Councils office at 110 Maryland Avenue Northeast.

Stop the Frack Attack Call In Day Information
If you can’t make it in person on Thursday, you can still help Stop the Frack Attack by reaching out to your members of Congress by phone the same day.
It’s easy. Just call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to speak to your member of Congress. Once you are connected, you can tell whoever answers this:
“I am calling to ask for your support for the Fracturing Responsibility and Awareness of Chemicals Act, also known as the FRAC Act. The House bill is H.R. 1084, sponsored by Representatives DeGette, Hinchey and Polis. The Senate bill is S. 587, sponsored by Senator Casey. Passing this law would repeal the oil and gas industry’s exemption from the Safe Drinking Water Act. This would allow the EPA to regulate fracking’s impacts on our drinking water supply and force the oil and gas industry to publicly disclose the types, amounts, and combinations of chemicals they use in fracking. Will you cosponsor the FRAC Act and support national drinking water protections?”
Please call your member of Congress on Thursday, July 26, and support our grassroots swell of organizers lobbying that day in DC!
