Friend — As you might know the Energy & Environment team at Accountable.US has been hard at work exposing special interests in the oil and gas industry, their hypocritical stances on climate action, and their harmful exploitation of the nation’s public lands.
This work is just one part of our mission at Accountable.US and we wanted to share an important update with you: From now on, you’ll still get emails about how you can help protect the environment and our public lands – they'll just have a new name at the top: Accountable.US. We’ll also keep you up to date on how we’re shining a light on corrupting influences and special interests in public life across a variety of issues.

Fortunately, with the Trump era behind us, we no longer have to battle industry shills like David Bernhardt and Ryan Zinke in the Interior Department. But that doesn't mean our work is finished – far from it. There are many in Congress who are happy to allow oil and gas companies to exploit our public lands and wreck the environment. And until that stops, we'll have a job to do.
Here are some of the projects we're working on at Accountable.US:
Drop The Chamber: Urging companies to uphold their commitment to voting rights by cutting ties with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which is currently opposed to major voting rights reform legislation and has a long history backing voter suppression efforts.
Campaign Against Corporate Complicity: Preventing the normalization of the cruel and undemocratic actions of the Trump administration by ensuring that companies scrutinize former officials looking to sell their government experience as a qualification.
Polluters Exposed: Exposing the influence of oil and gas CEOs and their attempts to block progress on addressing climate change.
Holding accountable Members of Congress who supported the January 6 insurrection – and the corporations and trade associations that continue to fund them.
And of course, we'll continue to protect public lands and the environment, provide public research, expose corruption and malfeasance at all levels of government, and hold policymakers and special interests accountable.
