WHAT KIND OF AN IMPACT DO WE MAKE?
We run smart, strategic campaigns — campaigns with concrete goals, detailed plans, rigorous training, and above all, a laser-like focus on results. Here are just some of the ways we’re making an impact.
WE’RE STOPPING THE OVERUSE OF ANTIBIOTICS ON FACTORY FARMS
We should be using antibiotics to save lives — not to fatten up chickens and pigs on factory farms in ways that breed new “superbugs” that threaten our health. Impact organizers have already helped persuade McDonald’s and Subway to stop serving meat raised using routine, non-therapeutic antibiotics. Now we’re organizing consumers across the country to call for industry wide change.
WE’RE ENSURING AMERICA KEEPS ITS CLIMATE PROMISES
We need America to continue to be a leader on reducing emissions linked to climate change. President Trump has indicated that he plans to get rid of protections that reduce carbon emissions from power plants, and has said he will not follow through on the Paris Climate Agreement. Impact organizers will be on the ground in 25 states and on college campuses to mobilize businesses, faith leaders and citizens to demonstrate the commitment to keeping our promises on climate change, and transitioning a sustainable, renewable energy economy.
WE’RE SAVING OUR BEES AND OUR FOOD SUPPLY
Communities across the country are working to stop harmful pesticide spraying in their towns and cities, and we've made major strides in building the movement to end the sale of bee-killing pesticides nationwide. For too long, we’ve been allowing the use of too many bee-killing pesticides on our farms and fields. We shouldn't have to wonder whether the way our food is being grown is killing bees. So we’re advocating for a national ban on toxic ‘neonicotinoid’ pesticides to protect our food supply.
