The fracking industry has polluted our land, air and water, creating a public health crisis in communities around Pennsylvania. Food & Water Watch helped found the statewide coalition Pennsylvanians Against Fracking to organize grassroots leaders to pressure state officials to stop fracking.
We are continuing to work with communities to resist the expansion of fracking-related infrastructure, and in Philadelphia we are joining local groups in the fight against polluting refineries, pipelines, petrochemical facilities and other fossil fuel infrastructure.
And we are working throughout the state to fight against water privatization schemes, empowering community leaders to hold elected officials accountable and keep public resources under public control and free from profiteering corporations.
