Large corporations control almost everything we touch: from the clothing we wear, to the computers we work on, to the medications we take, and even the food we eat. I was aware of sweatshops, human trafficking, and forced labor prior to my time at Global Exchange, but I had not fully considered all the implications of today’s corporation giants. Over the past several weeks, I have been investigating corporations that are guilty of human rights abuses and environmental disasters for Global Exchange’s Top Ten Most Wanted Corporate Criminal List of 2014.

It's time we all got on board with a people-powered climate plan.The ultimate destination is to join the largest-ever climate march In New York City on September 21 & 22, coinciding with the United Nations Climate Summit. I will be joining the train in the Bay Area, and meeting more than 200 fellow riders, sharing stories and strategies for change. I will be leading workshops on community rights, rights of nature and fracking, and learning from others as we come together from across the country to share knowledge and collaborate while enjoying a beautiful ride through breathtaking wilderness areas. Join us!

Part of the intern experience at Global Exchange involves a short exposure to each department’s work. As the Reality Tours intern, experiencing a mini Reality Tour around San Francisco’s historic Mission District gave me not only better insight to the work that my team prepares for but also a greater awareness and appreciation of the history, culture, and life that this neighborhood offers.
