Review for Rainforest Action Network, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

RAN is the undisputed expert at scaring companies into good behavior, negotiating with them about what good behavior is, and then staying on top of them to keep them good - punish them when they fall and rewarding them when they succeed. That is why Fortune called them The Mosquito in the Tent". They never give up and they hve saved millions of oacres of earth and thousands of people int eh process. they are the best!

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

Stopping Citibank from giving loans to forest destroying omapnies

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not change a thing

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

It is fearless - and effectives

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

Activists, hard-headed negotiators, dedicated board members who put their bodies on the line with the staffs and volunteers

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

Stop mountain top removal by the coal companies

Ways to make it better...

We could have raised more money

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

raising enough money to take on the coal companies getting enough activist volunteers growing beyond their SF base

One thing I'd also say is that...

They did a good job at fending off a vindeictive Congressional investigation

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
