These documents together constitute a toolkit for organizing around local strategies to address the threats of fracking:

1. Educate your neighbors to keep as many people as possible from signing leases;

2. Work with your local elected leaders to implement ordinances or resolutions to say “NO” to fracking; and

3. Work with your local elected leaders to take back local control over zoning with legal challenges.

The toolkit can be printed as a whole and used to organize your community around these three strategies. Or, the documents can be used individually.
