No fracking at the gates of our national parks

At a time when our country needs to be doing everything we can to cut down our fossil fuel consumption, Donald Trump wants to turn more of our country over to pollution for profit.

In fact, Trump's Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has released a plan to open up over one million new acres to fracking – right up to the edge of some of our most pristine National Parks.

By law, the Bureau has to accept public comments on their plan for 45 days. Sign the petition to tell Trump's BLM: No fracking near National Parks!

Over and over, we've seen the environmental costs of fracking: toxic drinking water, worsening air pollution, man-made natural disasters, and increased exposure to chemicals that harm children and infants.

Fracking saddles working families with unconscionable human costs and piles of medical bills while thousands of miles away, corporate CEOs rake in multimillion dollar bonuses.

The Trump administration has made clear that they're willing to give fossil fuel companies every inch of our country, if they ask for it. If they're successful in opening up these special places to fracking, there's no place in America that's safe.

We're taking a stand.

Stand with me! Add your name to tell the BLM "No new fracking leases!"
