    Thanks for the webinar on the maps and network building. I was only able to watch the recording. I really appreciated the feedback and ideas from the leaders. I also appreciate the ways that FracTracker and Halt the Harm Network are sharing the data among each other. It would be wonderful if we can get more organizations that want to help people connect to local leaders and groups for help can share too! Thanks to all that participated and to Sam and Ryan!
