About Majority Action:

Majority Action is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering shareholders of all sizes to hold corporations and their leaders accountable to high  standards of long-term value  creation, corporate  governance, and social responsibility.

Our campaigns expose harmful corporate  governance and behavior, catalyze investor  and public action, and confront the minority who make corporate  abuses possible to defend the long-term financial, environmental, and social interests of the majority. We do this by weaving together  investigative research, institutional investor engagement, strategic communications, and grassroots partnerships into integrated strategic campaigns.

While Majority Action is not a traditional membership-based organization; the team works in close partnership with grassroots organizations. We work together  to develop strategies and execute tactics that support everyday people making their power felt in corporate boardrooms. Learn more at www.majorityaction.us.
