Governor O'Malley — Follow New York's Lead and Ban Fracking in Maryland!

New York just made a monumental decision to ban fracking! After activists demanded that the health effects of fracking be studied, a two year investigation by the state's own commission confirmed what the movement has been saying all along, that fracking cannot be done safely. Now, I urge you to do the same. Hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas is a dangerous process that threatens our health and environment. I urge you to follow New York's lead and ban fracking in Maryland to protect all families from this dangerous process.

NO KINDER MOGAN CO2 PIPELINE THROUGH ABO PASS IN NEW MEXICO

PLEASE TAKE A STAND AGAINST THESE DANGEROUS PIPELINES WHICH FIND THE LEAST EXPENSIVE ROUTE RATHER THAN THE LEAST INVASIVE ROUTE. KINDER MORGAN HAS A HISTORY OF EPA VIOLATIONS AND ALLEGATIONS OF NEGLECT FOR THEIR PIPELINES THAT RUN THROUGH PRIVATE PROPERTY. PLEASE ASK OUR GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES AND THE BLM TO TAKE A STAND FOR THE PEOPLE THEY REPRESENT BY MAKING IT MANDATORY THAT ANY AND ALL PIPELINES MUST BE HIGHLY MAINTAINED, AS SAFE, AND AS FAR AWAY FROM RESIDENCES HUMANLY POSSIBLE.

A frack-free Christmas

Your polluting fracking operation next to Gary Baumgardner’s home in Union Township is about to ruin their annual Christmas dinner tradition. Gary’s granddaughter and her parents can’t attend this yearly tradition due to the overwhelming pollution. Don't be a grinch this Christmas. Shut down your operation for one day so the family can enjoy the holiday together.

Keep a prison program for mothers and children alive

The Family Preservation Program, located in Oregon's Coffee Creek Women's Correctional Facility, is scheduled to be shut down at the end of 2014. The program is desperately needed to help women and their children. The prison claims there are other programs, but if you look closely, you will find the other programs serve very few women or children and most of them are annual events rather than on-going programs. Not a single woman who has been in this program has reoffended upon her release. Please do not shut down this program.

Thank Governor Cuomo For His Leadership On Fracking!

Governor Cuomo, thank you for your bold and determined leadership. By concluding that fracking is too dangerous to proceed in New York, you not only stood up for the people of your state but for people in communities across the country who are suffering from the consequences of fracking. You have earned a place in history.

We still fight for Eric Garner

Governor Hickenlooper — Follow New York's Lead and Ban Fracking in Colorado!

New York just made a monumental decision to ban fracking!

Now, I urge you to do the same. Hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas is a dangerous process that threatens our health and environment. I urge you to follow New York's lead and ban fracking in Colorado to protect all families from this dangerous process.
