Organization Description:

Infact is a national grassroots organization with a 25-year history of waging corporate campaigns - and winning! Infact's purpose is to stop life-threatening abuses by transnational corporations and increase their accountability to people around the world. Infact's core constituency is consumers across all demographic groups (class, race, religion, sexual orientation, age, ethnicity, and gender). While nearly all people are negatively affected by corporate abuses, Infact has repeatedly seen that economically poor people, women, children, and communities of color are most adversely affected by the abuses of transnational corporations. Infact's current campaign to hold the tobacco industry accountable for its deadly practices is international in scope, and relies on support from diverse religious communities across the US.
