FracTracker, the project, was originally developed to investigate health concerns and data gaps surrounding western PA fracking. FracTracker Alliance supports groups across the United States, addressing pressing extraction-related concerns with a lens toward health effects and exposure risks on communities from oil and gas development. We provide timely and provocative data, ground-breaking analyses, maps, and other visual tools to help advocates, researchers, and the concerned public better understand the harms posed by hydrocarbon extraction.


Pennsylvania Environmental Council Since 1970, PEC has been a central figure in the environmental and conservation discussion in Pennsylvania — and we will continue to play that role. Every day, PEC manages challenges facing Pennsylvania’s water, land, and air resources whether from past activities, current practices, or potential future impacts.


Coal Field Justice We fight for coalfield communities through advocacy, education, and organizing. Longwall mining and shale gas fracking are destroying ecosystems and displacing people across Southwestern Pennsylvania. We work with residents to develop community-led responses to this cycle of extreme energy extraction and exploitation. 


Penn Future Pennsylvania has the third worst air quality in the United States. Forty years after passage of the Clean Air Act, problems exist because industries continue to dump toxics into the air. Government regulators refuse to make polluters clean up their acts, often granting permit extensions that allow polluters to operate in violation of the law, harming the people that breathe dirty air.
