Action center

We seek to create a system that benefits everyone. Whether we're stopping destructive corporate boondoggles or pushing for stronger government pollution standards, we aim to make it possible for all people to enjoy the planet's bounty. Our work focuses on the economic drivers of environmental degradation -- from government subsidies and permits to societal issues like the externalized costs of pollution -- to limit and eventually end the destruction of the planet.

Our current campaigns have us leading the charge to stop genetically engineered foods from finding their way onto our plates, pressuring the federal government to prioritize people instead of polluters, and working to protect bees and other pollinators essential to our food system.
