We, grass roots environmental groups across Illinois, (The Illinois Coalition For A Moratorium On Fracking — aka Frack Free Illinois) include MoveOn.org, PDA Chicago and Illinois, SE Environmental Task Force, CAPA (Chicago Area Peace Action), Stop the Frack Attack on IL, Gray Panthers, and the Illinois Citizens for Clean Air and Water. We stand together in support of a Frack Free Illinois. We advocate for a ban on the dangerous practice of fracking and work towards stopping or slowing fracking and all of its dangerous effects — in the IL General Assembly, state agencies and local governments. We work with other organizations on various aspects of this campaign including SAFE, Southern Illinoisans Against Fracturing Our Environment, IPA, Illinois People’s Action, The Leagues of Women Voters of Illinois, CAPOW, Citizen’s Act To Protect Our Water, Environment Illinois and Food and Water Watch
