Food & Water Watch is strong in Illinois and has won major victories protecting Chicago’s public water system, staving off the fracking industry, and protecting Southern Illinois from fracking. Most recently we helped organize the Chicago People's Climate March and brought together over 5,000 people to demand justice for our climate and our communities. We also fight for strong regulation to prevent factory farming and to level the playing field for small and organic growers across the state. When food arrives at our grocers, we fight for it to be safe and transparently labeled. We’re ready to take strong stances for our health and environment. Are you ready to stand with us?
