Civil Society Actions

In light of the 17th round of Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations that took place from May 15th to 24th, 2013 in Lima, Peru, a campaign was launched by Peruvian civil society groups, which was termed "No Negociable".  These groups, which include Red Peruana por una Globalización con Equidad (RedGE), launched the coalition in order to oppose the agreement's harmful intellectual property and investor-state dispute settlement provisions. Their actions have included a petition aimed at Peruvian President Ollanta Humala Tasso, which now counts over 3,000  signatures. These organizations also organized events in Lima during the negotiation round, including a public forum, which took place on May 16th, 2013 and a public rally the following day, on May 17th.

Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation


Together, two separate corporate entities called Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation, Inc., form Public Citizen. Both entities are part of the same overall organization, and this Web site refers to the two organizations collectively as Public Citizen.

Although the work of the two components overlaps, some activities are done by one component and not the other. The primary distinction is with respect to lobbying activity. Public Citizen, Inc., an IRS § 501(c)(4) entity, lobbies Congress to advance Public Citizen’s mission of protecting public health and safety, advancing government transparency, and urging corporate accountability. Public Citizen Foundation, however, is an IRS § 501(c)(3) organization. Accordingly, its ability to engage in lobbying is limited by federal law, but it may receive donations that are tax-deductible by the contributor. Public Citizen Inc. does most of the lobbying activity discussed on the Public Citizen Web site. Public Citizen Foundation performs most of the litigation and education activities discussed on the Web site.

You may make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., Public Citizen Foundation, or both. Contributions to both organizations are used to support our public interest work. However, each Public Citizen component will use only the funds contributed directly to it to carry out the activities it conducts as part of Public Citizen’s mission. Only gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible. Individuals who want to join Public Citizen should make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., which will not be tax deductible.
