Members of the Congressional Black and Progressive Caucuses stand in solidarity with Our Water, Our Right coalition in Nigeria in protecting water systems from privatization.
As federal investment in our water systems has declined precipitously, corporations like Veolia and Suez have marketed water privatization, including in the form of "public-private partnerships," as a solution to cities' water woes.

Now is a critical moment to expose the fossil fuel industry’s interference on the global stage and on their home turf. By doing so, we’ll empower the governments negotiating at the U.N. right now to reject Big Polluters’ dangerous distractions and make sure the global response to this crisis reflects the needs of people -- and truly advances climate justice. We’re counting on you to turn up the heat on these Big Polluters directly so they feel the power of people from the floors of their shareholders’ meetings to the halls of the U.N.
This new graphic visually illustrates the myriad routes of access some of the world's largest fossil fuel corporations have to the UN climate talks.
