Our mission is to educate organizations and individuals about the vast amounts of money Koch Industries has donated to right wing causes for their own personal gain.

Charles G. Koch and David H. Koch run Koch Industries and Koch Family Foundations, one of the largest single sources of funding for conservative organizations in the United States. Organizations and think tanks supported by the foundation include The Tea Party, Citizens for a Sound Economy, the libertarian Cato Institute, the Heritage Foundation, Reason Magazine, the Manhattan Institute, and the Heartland Institute. David and Charles Koch were the primary funders of Glenn Beck's recent "Restoring Honor" rally in Washington DC which was held on the anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech.

The billionaire brothers have spent more money than any individual or oil conglomerate to spread misinformation about global warming. Many of their "donations" have been funneled through the political process to defeat any and all attempts at creating climate control legislation. They are currently donating huge sums of money to defeat Democrats and Progressives in the upcoming election of 2010.

1. Petitioning major retailers to refrain from stocking their shelves with Georgia-Pacific or Invista products (subsidiary companies of Koch Industries)

2. Advance an "on the ground" campaign to educate individuals about the ways Koch Industries works against their interests.

3. Advance an online campaign of letter writing and petition signing.
