Delivering people power

We're working to tackle climate change, stop throwaway plastics from polluting our oceans, and stop the widespread use of dangerous pesticides. To win, we need tens of thousands of people, from all walks of life, putting their voices and their hard-earned money behind the groups working for these causes. That’s what we mean by people power, and that’s what we deliver.

Making an impact

We’ve been running grassroots campaigns across the country since 1982. Over the last 30 years, we’ve worked on behalf of U.S. PIRG, Environment America and others on a wide range of issues in all parts of the country. Our canvassers have gathered more than 20 million petition signatures, and we’ve raised more than $500 million to help these groups win their campaigns.
