What is Halt the Harm Network?

Halt the Harm is a people-powered network that connects Leaders and Supporters in the movement to halt the harms of the oil and gas industry. Our goal is to connect, serve and support community activists, leaders, experts, individuals, and other entities working to stop the industry’s negative impact on our families, communities and the environment.

In 2016 Netcentric Campaigns started the Halt the Harm Network (HHN) as a concept. The idea was to create a movement that would connect, and support individuals dedicated to protecting communities from the devastation caused by fracking and gas development.

HHN is currently (November 2022) composed of 3,985 Leaders aided by 18,492 Supporters. They represent 48 US states, D.C., and some countries outside the US. The people in HHN regularly take action to further the initiatives, campaigns, and organizing efforts to fight the oil and gas industry. They work in more than 370 organizations both large and small and include highly professional staff to volunteers who have ignited tiny ad hoc groups of resistance around very local issues such as a single well pad, injection well, spill, or pipeline threat.

The more we strengthen our networks and share resources, the stronger we are and the more leverage we have. Members of our Leader Network can share your latest campaign or call to action beyond your immediate contacts on the message forum. We invite you to join the network here.
