Sobre Nós

Friends of the Earth (FOE) is a national not-for-profit environmental organization that strives for a healthier and more just world. We push for the reforms that are needed. It’s an approach that has worked for five decades to produce important victories that help protect our planet and its people. We’re part of Friends of the Earth International, http://www.foe.org/about-us/friends-of-the-earth-international , a federation of groups working in more than 70 countries on today’s most urgent environmental and social issues.

What We Do:

Friends of the Earth, as an outspoken leader in the environmental and progressive communities, seeks to change the perception of the public, media and policy makers -- and effect policy change -- with hard-hitting, well-reasoned policy analysis and advocacy campaigns that describe what needs to be done, rather than what is seen as politically feasible or politically correct. This hard-hitting advocacy has been the key to our successful campaigns over our 47-year history.

One way that Friends of the Earth works to achieve a just and healthy world, is by focusing on the economic drivers that are encouraging environmental degradation. Depending on the issue, these drivers may include public investment, granting corporations the right to pollute, or other factors. With key policy expertise at the federal and state levels, Friends of the Earth works to eliminate these drivers and thus bring environmental degradation to a halt.

What Makes Us Different:

  • We fight for what’s needed over the longer term for all creatures on our planet, not for what is easy or popular in the short term.
  • We are a loud and fearless voice for the environment -- and have been one for 47 years.
  • We act globally and locally. Worldwide collaboration is a powerful tool, which is why we are a part of the world’s largest environmental network, with activists in 75 countries.
  • We know that solving deep-rooted environmental problems requires exposing and fighting the economic forces that fuel them.
  • We employ a variety of tactics -- from policy analysis, to grassroots activism, to litigation, to creative communications -- in order to win campaigns.

What We Have Achieved:

In recent years we have:

  • Won tough limits on air pollution from ships.
  • Persuaded thousands of grocery stores to commit to not sell genetically engineered salmon, should it come to market.
  • Thwarted the construction of dangerous nuclear reactors.
  • Exposed corruption in the review of the proposed Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline.

And we have a more than 40-year legacy of scoring important victories on behalf of the planet and the people who live on it.
