The Trump administration and some leaders in Congress are pursuing an agenda that puts our environment and everyday people at risk. The Fund is running campaigns to defend our most important environmental and consumer protections. To tackle climate change and ensure that big banks and credit card companies don't take advantage of people like you and me, it won't be enough to be right or have a great argument. To get decision makers to do the right thing, you need hundreds, thousands, sometimes millions of people to make their voices heard through petitions, emails, small donations, and meetings.
Change takes people power and the Fund builds that power. For more than 30 years, we’ve helped to win campaigns and build resources for the nation’s top public interest and environmental organizations, including Environment America and U.S. PIRG.
