What Earthworks does with their money:

We fulfill our mission by working with communities and grassroots groups to reform government policies, improve corporate practices, influence investment decisions and encourage responsible materials sourcing and consumption. We expose the health, environmental, economic, social and cultural impacts of mining and energy extraction through work informed by sound science. Earthworks partners with local affected communities, national and international advocates to respond to and solve the growing threats to the earth’s natural resources, clean water, biodiversity, special places and communities from irresponsible mining, drilling, and digging. Earthworks is dedicated to mobilizing the public, and governmental and corporate decision makers to take action against the destructive impacts of extraction.

Earthworks in the news:

"Residents are also worried about living with water polluted with cyanide and heavy metals long after Newmont leaves. Despite company promises, residents contend with contaminated water at the Yanacocha mine. Mirtha’s organization, Grufides, posted this video that highlights contamination of streams at the now-closed San Jose pit in Yanacocha – the first of many to be closed in the coming years."
