Welcome to Consumer Reports Advocacy

Consumer Reports is an independent nonprofit organization that works for a fair, safe and transparent marketplace.

Since we were founded as Consumers Union in 1936, we have advocated for the rights of all consumers. Now, we are united under the Consumer Reports name, bringing together our trusted testing, research, journalism, and advocacy.

We hope you will partner with us and our six million members for a better world.

Media Advocacy Tips

Media advocacy is often an important component in campaigns to protect charitable assets in conversions. Follow these steps to ensure that you use a media strategy to advance your policy goals, rather than the other way around. Remember — without a clearly drafted conversion law on your side, and without big money for lobbying, the news media may sometimes be the best tool in your campaign.
