Our Mission

Our food, water and climate are under constant assault by corporations who put profit over the survival of humanity. They have seized control of the very institutions that were built to protect us. We mobilize people to reclaim their political power, hold our elected officials accountable, and resist corporate control — ensuring we all have the essential resources we need to thrive. This is a fight we must win because this planet is the only one we get.

Who We Are

We believe in a Diverse, Equitable and Inclusive Workplace. Diversity includes all the unique ways in which people differ from one another and we recognize the multiple identities in which an individual connects. Equity is about the just treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement of all people while being intentional about eliminating barriers to achieve equity for protected groups. Inclusion is the deliberate creation of an environment in which any individual or group is welcomed, respected, supported, and valued to fully participate.
