Friends of the Earth strives for a more healthy and just world. We understand that the challenges facing our planet call for more than half measures, so we push for the reforms that are needed, not merely the ones that are politically easy. Sometimes, this involves speaking uncomfortable truths to power and demanding more than people think is possible. It's hard work. But the pressures facing our planet and its people are too important for us to compromise.
We are members of Friends of the Earth International, a global network representing more than two million activists in 76 different countries. In the United States, we advocate in the halls of Congress, in state capitals, and with community groups around the country. With offices in Washington, DC and San Francisco, and members in all 50 states, we urge policymakers to defend the environment and work towards a healthy environment for all people.
Strives to preserve our natural resources, advocates for a toxin-free environment, works to stop global warming, and fights for justice for people throughout the world.
