RAINFOREST ACTION NETWORK
April 28, 2009

RAN is a fantastic organization. interned with them last Summer with the Rainforest Agribusiness Campaign. The staff there did everything they could to make me feel welcome, treated me with respect, and helped me to help them with their campaign against destructive agribusiness corporations ADM, Bunge, and Cargill. I helped organize a direct action organizing event where 2000 people all across the US and Canada went to their local supermarkets and placed stickers marked "product may contain rainforest destruction" on products containing palm oil. It was an amazing experience and I highly recommend RAN.
