Why we gather
Sometimes, legal action is the only way to stop violations of our basic social, economic and environmental rights. That’s where we gather, and why we gather. The Crowd Versus helps nonprofits raise money for targeted legal actions against irresponsible companies and governments.
Together we can empower justice and hold them accountable.
More importantly, we – together with you – generate attention for the injustice in the media and at public/political debates. Winning a lawsuit gives a specific verdict for a specific case and often creates a very important change in law. That presents the much-needed change for the better in social or environmental justice.
Your donation helps empower justice.
The Crowd Versus financially supports nonprofits engage in their legal fight against multinationals. As a crowd we the people are able to fight back and stop multinationals only looking at profits.
The nonprofits we work with pursue their cases on behalf of people or ecosystems they know through their daily work. This is a prerequisite for us when starting lawsuits on these matters.
The reason we target for monthly donations is simple: it allows for strategic planning during the unpredictable times of a lawsuit. It allows the nonprofits and activist lawyers to work more efficiently. Instead of monthly recurring Donations, Contributors may also chose to give one-time donations.
