Who We Are:
Friends of the Earth-U.S., founded by David Brower in 1969, is the U.S. voice of the world’s largest
federation of grassroots environmental groups, with a presence in 75 countries. Friends of the Earth is a hard-hitting, progressive environmental organization that pulls no punches and speaks sometimes uncomfortable truth to power. It’s an approach that has worked over the last 50 years, resulting in landmark environmental laws, precedent-setting legal victories and groundbreaking reforms of domestic and international regulatory, corporate, and financial institution policies.
To accomplish our mission, Friends of the Earth works at the nexus of environmental protection, economic policy, and social justice to fundamentally transform the way our country and the world value people and the environment.
Deforestation is at the center of some of the planet’s most urgent, overlapping crises: the global climate emergency, unprecedented species loss, and an epidemic of violence against land and environmental defenders. Friends of the Earth’s International Forests program works to address the root causes of forest destruction and the marginalization of forest-dwelling communities by pressuring the world’s largest financial institutions to “defund deforestation;” advancing legislative and regulatory solutions; and amplifying the voices and struggles of frontline environmental human rights defenders.
