House Party Benefit for Corporate Accountability International

Please join us for an informative and engaging evening with New York City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn and noted food author Marion Nestle to benefit Corporate Accountability International, Wednesday June 17. The event will be held at the loft of long time Corporate Accountability International supporters Jaimie Cloud and David Levine, in Soho. Click here to RSVP.

Since 1977, Corporate Accountability International (formerly Infact) has waged and won campaigns that challenge irresponsible and dangerous actions by corporate giants. Today our mission is more urgent than ever and we need your continued support.

Christine Quinn has been a strong advocate of Corporate Accountability International's water and food campaigns. She champions investment in New York City public water infrastructure and as Speaker of the New York City Council has phased out the city's purchasing of bottled water.

Marion Nestle is one of the nation's leading food experts and is on the advisory board of our Value [the] Meal campaign, which challenges McDonald's to stop contributing the current epidemic of diet-related disease.

Please join us at David Levine and Jaimie Cloud's loft in Soho on June 17 to hear about our current campaign work and how you can help.

At Corporate Accountability International, we have always emphasized the importance of putting a spotlight on corporate abuse. Our campaigns challenge abuse at every level: from coordinated, local grassroots actions to international policy negotiations.

We look forward to seeing you at our event on June 17 so we can tell you more.
