As we head into 2017, all signs point to the majority of our elected federal policymakers chomping at the bit to give corporations free rein over everything from approving more pesticides, to giving corporations a blank check to poison and pollute, to pretty much blessing all manner of corporate corruption.

With each new announcement or prediction about who Trump will entrust with the future of this planet, our determination to fight back—in the marketplace, in our own small communities and right on up into the halls of Congress—intensifies.
We are facing a mountain of issues that will demand immediate attention and decisive action. We will need you. We will need your financial support. And we will increasingly be calling on you to not just fight this battle from behind your computer screens—necessary, but on its own, not enough—but to come out, in person, to help us unite the many single-issue movements around our common goals. This, we believe, is our only hope to address the many, and dire, challenges that lie ahead.
