We have worked with local groups to successfully pass ordinances protecting individual towns from all sources of toxic fracking waste. Eighteen municipalities in the state are now protected, adding to hundreds in neighboring New York. Contact us to find out how to protect your town.
Our organizing is not only focused on winning campaigns; we are building long-term power to ensure that the food, water and environment in Connecticut are protected for our families for years to come. We’ve already demonstrated our power to make change in Connecticut; in 2013, Food & Water Watch and our allies came together to help pass the first GMO labeling law in the country. We continue to work to protect safe and healthy food in our state.
