Maryland's two-year moratorium on fracking expires this October, but thankfully lawmakers have introduced a bill in both the House and Senate to ban this toxic practice once and for all.
If the past few weeks have taught us anything, it's that when people show up en masse to demand what they believe in, they're heard. So please join us on March 2 for this historic march on Annapolis to urge our legislators to pass these bills. We need to show them that we don't want fracking -- and its threats to our air, water and wildlife -- in our state, now or ever.
