The Energy Program includes the Oil & Gas Accountability Project as well as our work on other energy minerals and petrochemicals. This program works to change federal, state, and local government policy and to support and empower communities impacted by existing and proposed energy extraction, to raise awareness about unconventional shale oil and gas and hydraulic fracturing (aka fracking) and to reduce the destructive impacts of all forms of energy extraction.

General Programming includes Media and Communications, Research and Publications and Digital Engagement and Advocacy.Media and Communications - Press outreach and storytelling to promote and publicize the work of Earthworks and its allies. Research and Publications - Analysis and development of policy proposals, research on impacts of mining and energy extraction, and publishing fact sheets, reports, and informationDigital Engagement and Advocacy - Outreach, engagement and advocacy using digital tools, providing information to the public and Earthworks members, and responding to inquiries.

The Mining Program includes efforts in the U.S. and internationally to reform mining policies and practices, including work to ensure that clean energy revolution does not lead to more harmful mining. This program protects communities and special places by stopping mining where it doesn't belong, reins in the riskiest and dirtiest mining practices, and reforms and defends state, federal and international policies that protect communities, water, wildlife, oceans and other natural resources.
