You care about the damage that fossil fuel and mining industries cause. To our air. To our water. To ecosystems. To the climate. To human rights. To public health.
You believe that social change happens from the bottom up and communities lead the way.
But sometimes grassroots activists and impacted communities need help to connect with decision makers and to build strong movements and effective advocacy campaigns.
Your dollars support our expert team to assist people on the frontlines so they can fight back — and win.
“I’ve worked with Earthworks’ professional staff for many years. Their on-the-ground assistance is invaluable to my small non-profit fighting a huge mine, and knowing they also are in DC leading the charge to protect communities, brings me hope for positive change. They are truly making a difference!” — Executive Director, Idaho Conservation Organization
“I can’t thank you enough for involving me in what was one of the best organizational training sessions I’ve been a part of. Too often the trainer talks about theory, and not practical application, and that was not the case here….I look forward to working with you all in the future.” — Texas Grassroots Activist
“I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart! You guys came in and took great footage and I learned so much. …. What you all do is so special and I’m thankful to know you.” — Impacted Resident, Pennsylvania
