Recently, Consumer Reports has made a difference in the marketplace, and we could not have done it without you. We helped mobilize consumers to lead a groundswell of opposition to the Time-Warner/Comcast merger, which would have hurt choice and competition, successfully urged laundry-detergent makers to address the problem of children getting injured from liquid-laundry pods, and played a key role in the government issuing stronger rules for campus banking cards.

These victories underscore a deep legacy of powering change. From getting every automaker to make seat belts and nearly fifty years later, electronic stability control standard on all cars to fighting for greater financial protections, stricter food safety laws, and mandatory hospital infection disclosure, we've succeeded in changing the lives of millions of consumers. We’re committed to using the strong platform of Consumer Reports to fight for consumer justice-- whether it is in the halls of Congress or the content of our products.
