Where your support goes
Corporations have our lobbyists in Washington, D.C. The people need advocates too. Public Citizen has been fighting for the public interest—and against corporate interests—since 1971. We do not accept funding from corporations or the government, so your support is a critical component of our mission to protect health, safety and democracy. Please make a contribution to help Public Citizen hold corporations and the government accountable to the people
Since our founding in 1971, we have delved into an array of areas, but our work on each issue shares an overarching goal: To ensure that all citizens are represented in the halls of power. For four decades, we have proudly championed citizen interests before Congress, the executive branch agencies and the courts. We have successfully challenged the abusive practices of the pharmaceutical, nuclear and automobile industries, and many others.
