No Frack Friday—Call In Day to the White House—888-925-7006
The national movement against fracking needs President Obama's attention. We cannot allow him to move forward with fracking for natural gas. We must demonstrate our power by flooding the White House with thousands of calls today.
When you dial 888-925-7006, you'll hear a message and then be connected to the White House Comment Line. Simply tell the volunteer on the line that President Obama must protect his constituents and walk away from fracking for shale gas.
Please note, the White House Comment Line is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST.
If you have trouble getting through on the comment line, you can comment on the White House website by clicking here.
Thanks so much for your continued efforts to protect ourselves from the ills of fracking for shale gas.
