    Public Health
  • When Coca-Cola’s interference put the the National Park Service’s plan to end the sale of bottled water at risk, thousands of members took action. The public outcry moved the Park Service to make good on its plan.

    Environment
  • After years of grassroots organizing by a powerful coalition coordinated by Corporate Accountability International, Colombia –once a safe haven for Big Tobacco – passed a comprehensive national tobacco control law in keeping with the global tobacco treaty.

    Public Health

    Public Health

    Human Rights, Public Health

    Environment, Public Health
  • We succeeded so well in connecting Philip Morris' brand image to its deadly abuses that even, after spending hundreds of millions of dollars to improve its brand, it was forced to change its name in 2003.

    Public Health
  • After the unanimous adoption of the global tobacco treaty, we launched a whirlwind grassroots campaign with governments and allied organizations across the Global South, swelling the number of ratifying countries from approximately 40 to 175 today.
