Working with allies
Corporate Accountability is just one organization in a constellation of organizations around the world campaigning to create a better future. Across all of our campaigns we partner with allied organizations to expand our impact, share our resources, and increase our collective effectiveness toward transformative change. This year, we feature three ways your support has enabled us to work with allies: adding corporate campaigning power behind Black-led organizing, shifting the public conversation on climate, and building a national coalition on water.
Bringing corporate campaigning tools to advance justice for Black people
“Corporations, government, and agents of oppression have continually profited from, tested on, consumed, exploited, harmed, disenfranchised, and forgotten Black people, Black communities, and Blackness.” Learn how the Corporate Accountability Black Collective is leading the organization to partner with Black-led organizations to challenge corporate power.
Building local and national power through the People’s Water Project
Corporate Accountability, Action Center on Race and the Economy (ACRE), Food & Water Watch, the NOLA Water Collective, along with other allies from across the country built the People’s Water Project from the ground up—no small feat during a pandemic. It is the first and the only nationwide coalition in the U.S. that focuses on the intersections of water justice: Ensuring safe, affordable water for all people and protecting water as a public good against threats of privatization.
Exposing the con of “net zero” with allies from around the world
“Net zero” plans are a dangerous cover for Big Polluters and the governments who back them. They allow these entities to evade responsibility for the climate crisis and shift the burden even more to people already on the frontlines of the climate crisis—while creating a false veneer of action. In some cases, “net zero” plans are actually being used to scale up fossil fuel extraction, burning, and emissions! So this year, we set out in partnership with allies to expose the truth.
