We can end private inequity Together
Private equity is a secretive industry that squeezes resources and wealth out of companies, communities, and the environment. Private equity executives make millions and leave a trail of destruction behind.
Private equity firms raise large sums of money and use the capital to take over everything from local newspapers to hospitals to retail to electricity generation. The firms charge fees and cut corners to increase their profits – while cutting salaries, benefits, health and safety standards; reducing quality of care; increasing rents; and – at twice the rate of public markets – driving companies to bankruptcy.

How We Win
For too long private equity firms have hidden their monstrous business practices behind a spreadsheet of financial gymnastics. That time is over. Join us for actions that expose the extractive business model of private equity firms.
Private equity firms continue to destroy jobs, communities, and the planet. Organize in solidarity with first and most impacted communities to share stories and stop private equity firms from investing in destructive projects.
We need a just transition to a sustainable future now. We can’t do it alone. Join us in calling on institutional investors to move away from this extractive economy and divest from private equity firms that fund fossil fuel projects.
