Today, corporations have too much power over our essential resources and the officials who enact and enforce the policies we need to protect our access to safe food and clean drinking water. We can change that.
Climate change poses the largest environmental threat ever known by humankind. But policymakers are afraid to take the action necessary to stop global warming, even as corporations find new ways to shift all risks to taxpayers and pocket enormous profits.
A handful of companies control the majority of the food we can buy—which means they make most of the decisions about what we eat.
Corporations are seeking to control and restrict our increasingly scarce and polluted water supplies. But we must treat water like the priceless resource it is—and as a human right.
Factory farms pollute the environment and our drinking water, wreck rural communities, and harm the welfare of animals—while increasing corporate control over our food.
Fracking is an extreme and unsafe method of extracting fossil fuels from the ground that harms our drinking water, health, environment and climate and has been linked to earthquakes. Reliance on fracking keeps us from moving to renewable energy.
Trade deals make our food less safe, endanger our environment and hand over more control over our democracy to corporations.
Genetically engineered (GMO) food relies on dangerous pesticides and increases corporate control over the food system. GMOs should be labeled so we have a voice in what we eat.
Pollution trading doesn’t solve our pollution problems—it just spreads them it around. Worse, in the case of water, it undermines proven regulations that have effectively protected our environment.
When people come together, we can make real, lasting change. But we can't do it without you.
