Last week, Public Citizen filed suit against the Trump administration to force disclosure of documents regarding testing of glyphosate — the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide.
The week before that, we petitioned in federal court to force a review of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s outrageous decision to roll back clean car standards — the largest federal climate program on the books.
Two weeks before that, we filed suit against the Trump administration to force compliance with the Fair Housing Act.
You get the idea.
We are rushing to the courthouse to hold the lawless Trump administration accountable.
Litigation is a crucial component of our comprehensive strategy to rein in the scoundrels and scammers who comprise the Trump administration.
There’s a lot the Trump administration does that we can’t stop in court.
But there’s a lot we can do.
With lawsuits, we have:
- Forced the Trump administration to publish the visitor logs of key White House agencies.
- Preserved funding for a number of evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention programs that the Trump administration wanted to cut and replace with abstinence-only programs.
And now we’ve filed a class action to preserve funding for dozens more.
- Compelled the Trump administration to implement a fair housing rule that will aid low-income people across the country.
And those are only some of our victories in court.
Every day, our attorneys scrutinize the latest abuses from the Trump administration.
Not just the soap opera developments at the White House, but the lower-profile actions that have vastly greater impact — and they look for new ways to stop the administration’s misconduct.
Needless to say, they are extremely busy.
We all are.
Our democracy has never experienced this kind of threat before.
But we are rising to the challenge of confronting that threat.
Thank you so much for your support, and for all you do on behalf of this shared project called Public Citizen.
President, Public Citizen
