WORC and its member groups have campaigned to hold corporations accountable in communities in our region. We’ve campaigned to prevent pollution from facilities like power plants and mines, protect taxpayers from expensive clean up bills by demanding appropriate bonds, and have corporations pay for the costs of development, such as water systems and roads.
Specifically, WORC has:
- Trained leaders and organizers to negotiate and conduct corporate research;
- Negotiated "good neighbor agreements" with corporations to protect the health and safety of local communities;
- Held popular education workshops to promote a greater public dialogue on corporate responsibility; and
- Produced an informative factsheet in WORC’s series of How To’s – How to Negotiate.
