I have to admit I like corporate accountability International, they get off their collective bums and get stuck in. Please spare a moment to read this appeal from your peers coming in to the Campaign for America's Future on a parallel flight path. :-)
Good luck with this Kelly
What a spring! With your help, we’ve focused every ounce of energy on the issues that best protect human rights and the environment from corporate abuse.
Your gift means we can take these programs to the next level this summer.
- Citizens United v. FEC – We helped mobilize tens of thousands of people to challenge the Supreme Court’s decision to let unlimited corporate money flow into elections.
This summer we’ll ramp up the pressure by exposing Koch Industries’ dirty ties to Justices Thomas and Scalia, while demanding a Department of Justice investigation.
- Protect the Human Right to Water – Nearly 1 billion people globally lack access to safe drinking water. Yet water privateers like Nestlé and Suez push to make water a high-priced commodity to be sold to the highest bidder, while corporations like Dow pollute and contaminate public water sources, leaving them toxic and un-drinkable.
This summer activists are challenging government officials to ensure that water is protected as a human right and that people, not corporations, are guaranteed our most essential resource.
- Think Outside the Bottle – This spring, Vermont joined four other states in bucking state spending on bottled water to stand up for strong public water systems and the human right to water.
This summer activists are building bottled water free zones in state capitals to move more governors across the country to challenge corporate control of water.
- Protect Children’s Health – We’ve led the way, by compelling Big Tobacco to stop marketing to kids worldwide and are now succeeding in moving the fast food industry to follow suit.
This summer we’re supporting the work of 170 countries that have already taken an official stand against Big Tobacco’s kid-focused marketing, in addition to mobilizing thousands of health professionals across the country to call for an end to the predatory marketing of junk food to kids.
Your gift will provide the resources and strength necessary to challenge the world’s most powerful corporate goliaths. Can you make a gift today?
Thank you for your partnership.
