Zac Foreman is a volunteer-organizer on the Value [the] Meal campaign from Houston, Texas and a new monthly donor.
I’m motivated to support and organize with Corporate Accountability International in Houston because of the number of lives affected by corporate greed and influence. It’s absurd that corporations can harm some of the most vulnerable people in the community and get away with it.
I don’t think it should even be a question, the amount of power corporations have right now. It needs to be fixed. We would have a different culture if corporations had less power—it would bring people together.
The rallies we’ve organized to get McDonald’s out of hospitals have been the highlight of this work. When I saw how much support we got, I realized that people really care.
The impact of Corporate Accountability International’s work is visible, and the campaigns work. Other groups have a lot of rhetoric but don’t have the action to show for it. With Corporate Accountability International, you see progress: You see hospitals around the country getting rid of McDonald’s and not renewing their contracts. It’s given me hope to see that you can really change things.
