EarthRights International

EarthRights International supports communities threatened by the social and environmental impacts of extractive and infrastructure projects. We oppose mega-projects that threaten ecosystems and the people who depend on them for survival, protect environmental defenders from brutal and unjust repression, and train indigenous legal advocates eager to defend their own communities from these ongoing threats. Our strategy is to put legal tools in the hands of communities so they can use the law to tell their stories and seek justice, thus leveling the playing field in a system that prioritizes the interests of governments, corporations and financial institutions.
