On November 12th, people committed to the protection of creation will travel to Sacramento to deliver a letter to Governor Brown, signed by over 100 faith leaders from around the state. The letter calls on the Governor to stop fracking and extreme fossil fuel extraction. Read the letter.
Preceding the delivery, we’ll come together for meditation, prayer and collective positive visioning for a world beyond toxic fossil fuel extraction, a world run by clean renewable energy, a world that doesn’t poison people to power our lives. This powerful event will take place on the west steps of the Capitol Building in Sacramento.

WHO ARE WE
Faith Against Fracking is a community of faith leaders and people of faith who are calling on our elected officials to stop fracking and other extreme fossil fuel extraction techniques. A fundamental cornerstone of most, if not all faiths, is the imperative to protect creation. Pope Francis' recent Encyclical on Climate Change called on all people living in our common home to be good stewards of the planet, "to protect the world, and not prey on it,". Since fracking and other extreme fossil fuel extraction methods destroy the environment, hurt communities, and contribute to climate change, we must gather at the crossroads of our different faiths and stand up for what is right, and put an end to these destructive practices.
