From stopping “scientific whaling” in South Korea to protecting the Arctic from Shell’s oil rigs to shutting down dirty coal plants here in the United States, we’re celebrating a 2012 full of victories for our planet. But none of it would have been possible without the help of each of you who choose to support our work. Whether we’re pressuring a major company to clean up their supply chain or convincing the government to ban dirty energy, none of it would be possible without our dedicated supporters. It’s with the positive momentum of 2012 that we continue to campaign for our futures the next year and the next year and the next year.
We’re 100 percent supporter funded which means our fights are your fights. Our 250,000 members in the United States and 2.8 million members worldwide provide virtually all of our funding through individual contributions. Your support provides the backbone of our organization and is invaluable to our efforts. Thank you for making all this possible.
