Faces of Fracking

Highlighting the Human Toll of Fracking in California
Event detail

A journalistic investigation into the impact of fracking on the people and places of California. An ongoing collection of stories, photographed by Sarah Craig, profiles individuals and communities on the front lines of fracking, and those engaged in the grassroots movement against it.

Fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, refers to the oil and gas industry practice of blasting water, sand, and chemicals at high pressure underground to break apart rock and more easily release hydrocarbons. Fracking produces millions of gallons of this toxic sludge, which can contaminate surface water, groundwater, food sources, and release harmful chemicals into the air.
