IssuesFriends of the Earth demands that leaders do what is necessary to defend all people and preserve the environment. We boldly push for what is needed and refuse to settle for what is politically easy, because that is the only way to achieve true justice and equity. We are not beholden to any corporate or political interests.
Our staff engage in hard-hitting advocacy campaigns by producing cutting-edge policy analyses, instigating lawsuits, targeting corporations, and organizing our members on the ground. This strong advocacy has been the key to our successful campaigns over our 48-year history.
