No Fracking AZ is a local (Navajo/Apache counties), grassroots effort aimed at halting the development of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) operations in Northern Arizona. We are entirely unpaid volunteers, from diverse backgrounds: we are homemakers, tradespeople, professionals, environmentalists and retirees. What we have in common is that we understand the real threat that fracking poses to our water, our land, and our way of life.
The news is full of stories of developers’ promises of economic development, followed by dire consequences. Communities and individuals throughout the United States have had their lives torn apart by illnesses, plummeting property values, and ruined water supplies. If you are wondering what you can do to help, please read our petition *here*. It is a start. If you would like to volunteer, please click Contact in the menu bar and let us know.
We need to stand up soon against corporate interests that are poised to change the character of our region. Once the fracking has begun, remediation of any problems will be like picking the pepper out of your mashed potatoes. We hope that you will join us in this struggle. Please fill out our contact form if you are willing to help, or have contacts that could assist us! We will also gratefully accept your donations; as a not-for-profit organization, each dollar you are able to send will have a direct and meaningful impact. Thank you for helping keep Arizona beautiful, safe, and frack-free!
