I volunteer for Food & Water Watch because I get to have a real impact on important campaigns. I know that every time I come out to help out at a table, a public event or activist meeting that what I'm doing is really making a difference.
Anne Bertucio


Since Food & Water Watch began, we’ve been working throughout California to support sustainable, healthy food and farms and keep the state’s precious water resources in public hands. We are immersed in major campaigns to defeat fracking, a massive corporate water grab, and to win labeling of genetically engineered foods.

Ban Fracking

Fracking is an intensive process to release and extract oil or gas by blasting water, chemicals and sand at high pressure into deep underground rock formations. From the Sacramento Valley to Los Angeles County, hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is taking place across California, polluting local water and air, accelerating climate change, eroding property values and creating tremendous amounts of waste, the disposal of which has been linked to earthquakes. As there is no safe way to frack, Food & Water Watch and our allies are working throughout California to achieve a statewide ban on fracking and we need your help.

Take action by telling Governor Brown to ban fracking in California.

Stop the Corporate Water Grab

Governor Brown’s massive Twin Tunnels Proposal is a $20-$50 billion giveaway to corporate agriculture and real estate developers at the expense of ratepayers and taxpayers. The 35-mile, 40-foot wide tunnels would divert the Sacramento River and send more water to California’s most powerful agribusinesses and oil companies that need more water for fracking.

Tell Governor Brown to put a stop to the tunnels project.

Join Food & Water Watch and our allies in calling on the Los Angeles City Council to put a stop to the Tunnel Tax.
