On Tuesday, June 18th, 2013, Clean Water Action will hold our annual Lobby Day at the state capitol in Harrisburg. Come lobby with us! The day will consist of the opportunity to meet with your state senator and representative as well as taking part in our rally for Department of Environmental Protection accountability at noon in the capitol rotunda.
It takes strength in numbers to show our elected officials that the people of Pennsylvania want to be protected from the dangers of fracking and want the Department of Environmental Protection to do its job! Join us!
