RAINFOREST ACTION NETWORK
April 30, 2009

Rainforest Action Network is awesome! They take on the corporate powers in the only way that matters to them: hitting their bottom line. Organizing the public to combat corporate polluters is the only way to make effective change, and RAN does this.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the cessation of the destruction of old-growth forests by timber companies.

RAINFOREST ACTION NETWORK
April 29, 2009

RAN is truly stand out in the field of environmental organizing. In a world in which multinational corporations are not beholden to the jurisdiction of a single nation-state or responsive to minuscule fines imposed by the world's governments, RAN looks beyond traditional lobbying to address the root of the problem. Working in concert with (not on behalf of) affected communities, RAN pulls activists from human rights, ecosystem preservation, and climate justice into unstoppable coalitions that use creative rhetorical tactics, non-violent civil disobedience and traditional campaign strategies to make real change in the world. This fresh perspective is the reason the Rainforest Action Network has triumphed over notoriously destructive corporations like Home Depot, Citigroup, and Boise Cascade for over 20 years and with our help can continue to fight and win battles with far reaching effects for years to come.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the constant energy and creativity that goes into every campaign. New and exciting activities draw in support and catch corporate leaders off guard.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated to coalition building. Too often environmental groups fight amongst themselves about specific solutions without realizing that campaigns need multiple constituencies and multiple tactics to truly represent the social movement we are as well as achieve broad successes.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

support indigenous communities in their fight to keep corporate and government interests off their traditional and crucial land, of which they are proven stewards.
