March and Rally to Ban Fracking in Maryland

March 2, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Join Marylanders from across the state on Thursday, March 2 as we march and rally in Annapolis to ban fracking!

Maryland has the opportunity to be the first state to legislatively ban fracking, and our state senators and delegates need to hear from their constituents in order to make it happen!

This march will round out our series of lobby days bringing together Marylanders from across the state to showcase our widespread support to #KeepItInTheGround and keep Maryland frack-free. We’ll converge on Annapolis to let our legislators know that THIS is the year to safeguard the future of Maryland’s health, communities and climate by passing a statewide ban on fracking.

The most impactful thing you can do to help keep fracking out of Maryland’s borders before the moratorium expires in October 2017 is to show our legislators we are not backing down.

Here are the details for the march and rally:

Who: Maryland residents and you!
When: Thursday, March 2, 1:00pm – 2:30pm. Buses arrive at 12:30 pm.
What: March and Rally for a Ban on Fracking
Where: March will depart from Asbury United Methodist Church (87 West Street, Annapolis MD) and End at Lawyer’s Mall
Transit: Get on a bus to Annapolis! Buses will be transporting Marylanders from Allegany, Frederick Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties as well as from Baltimore City. Reserve your bus seat here.
RSVP: Sign up here to march through the streets of Annapolis with us on March 2, as we showcase Maryland’s widespread support to ban fracking!
