About Us

Fight like you live here.

Saving Our Food, Water, and Climate By Changing Our Politics

Our food, water and climate are under constant assault by corporations that put their profits over the survival of humanity. They have seized control of the very institutions that were built to protect us. At Food & Water Action, we mobilize people to reclaim their political power, hold our elected officials accountable, and resist corporate control — ensuring we all have the essential resources we need to thrive. This is a fight we must win, because this planet is the only one we get.

Our sister organization, Food & Water Watch, combines research and education to galvanize public support to protect our most essential resources. At Food & Water Action, we hold our elected officials accountable and ensure that those who represent us reflect and embody our core values of universal access to safe food, clean water, and a livable climate.
