Welcome to the Consumers Union Policy and Action Team!
Consumer Reports helps you pick the products and services you want based on your own priorities, but you may not realize that we also work to improve the marketplace for everyone! Consumers Union is the policy and mobilization arm of Consumer Reports.
Some companies fight transparency and consumer protections but we're on your side. Right now, our robocall campaign is pressuring all the major phone companies to start giving you free robocall blocking and we're getting traction. Car companies don't want to open up the black box around their software to independent review, although that's exactly why Volkswagen got away with cheating emissions tests for so many years. So we're there fighting for disclosure so you can make your own choices and companies can't get away with cheats.
Take a look at the changes we're fighting for right now and join the campaign!
Check out today's actions!
