Mission: Rainforest Action Network campaigns for the forests, their inhabitants, and the natural systems that sustain life by transforming the global marketplace through grassroots organizing, education, and non-violent direct action.
Geographic areas served: US and International
Programs: RAN fights for people and planet by working at the intersection of three core issues: Preserving Rainforests, Protecting the Climate, and Defending Human Rights. Unlike any other organization, RAN does this through the lens of corporate accountability. That means RAN tackles some of the biggest corporations, banks, and global institutions on the planet. Traditionally, RAN works closely with local leaders to launch strategic corporate campaigns employing tactics such as: high-profile, direct communication and public awareness campaigns; peaceful direct actions against our targets; coordinated media and social media campaigns; highly researched and detailed reports; grassroots organizing; and high-level negotiations — and relentless follow-up to make sure promises are kept. RAN takes on these campaigns not to change the behavior of individual companies, but to change the practices and business culture of whole industrial sectors.
