Thanks for Taking Action

Now Join Our Action Team to Stop Infant Formula Marketing in Healthcare Facilities

Last week, our Action Team members got a first crack at sending Mayor Booker and Governor Snyder messages, urging them to cut ties with Nestlé. Join the team so you can get a headstart on putting an end to practices that harm families and commercialize our health care facilities.

As part of our team, you’ll be the first to know how you can take action in your community to help ensure that healthy families come before corporate profits.

We need people like you to write op-eds and letters to editors in local publications, to call and email hospitals, to pressure infant formula makers, and to raise awareness in communities.

Let’s team up to make sure families have at least a few commercial-free days to welcome their newborns.

Learn More about the distinction between these two components of Public Citizen.

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.
