The Mashapaug Nahaganset Tribe is currently opposing the proposed Fields Point Liquefied Natural Gas Liquefaction Project in the City of Providence and the proposed Clear River Power Plant in the Town of Burrillville. The Tribe has entered a lawsuit in international court against the state of Rhode Island and the cities of Providence and Cranston, charging them with environmental racism.

As the Tribe stated on their Facebook page, "Our and ancestral lands come first and foremost before corporate greed, disingenuous promises of "taking proper safety precautions" and the continued denigration of our natural habitat and environment."

The FANG Collective and the Environmental Justice League of Rhode Island are also among those fighting the projects.
