Rainforest Action Network
“Rainforest Action Network preserves forests, protects the climate and upholds human rights by challenging corporate power and systemic injustice through frontline partnerships and strategic campaigns.”
Home Depot, Disney, Bank of America, Cargill, Chevron, Citibank, Goldman Sachs, General Mills…
RAN takes on some of the biggest corporations on the planet — and we get results.
Since 1985, RAN has been one of the most effective and innovative activist organizations in the United States. We partner with local, indigenous and frontline communities to create smart campaigns that exert pressure and extract actionable policies from corporate culprits responsible for rainforest destruction, massive pollution, and pushing species toward extinction. And RAN demands that human rights, labor rights, and local and indigenous rights are fundamental to any new corporate policies.”
“Greenpeace exists because this fragile earth deserves a voice. It needs solutions. It needs change. It needs action.
Some people look at a forest, and all they see is lumber. But there are millions more who see a home, a heritage, a future. Around the globe, we are standing up for our communities, and we are holding governments and corporations accountable. Whether on the streets or at the ballot box, we hold the real power when we work together.”
“We believe optimism is a form of courage. We believe that a billion acts of courage can spark a brighter tomorrow.

A green and peaceful future is our quest. The heroes of our story are all of us who believe that better world is not only within reach, but being built today.”

We organize to build long-term political power and campaign to change the rules of our economic and political systems that create injustice and destroy nature.”
“Sometimes, this involves speaking uncomfortable truths to power and demanding more than people think is possible. It’s hard work. But the pressures facing our planet and its people are too important for us to compromise. Friends of the Earth strives for a more healthy and just world. We understand that the challenges facing our planet call for more than half measures, so we push for the reforms that are needed, not merely the ones that are politically easy.”
