We’d love to let you know how your support is having a positive impact on people's lives, and other ways you can help people live free from fear.

Stop big business profiting from abuse.

Some big businesses are making a killing from the exploitation of land, water, forests and other natural resources.

Brave women and men who peacefully resist this exploitation are under attack.

They are beaten, intimidated and even murdered.

Big business must be held to account for these actions.

The creation of an international legal agreement would be an important step towards this.

Help make this happen by signing Trócaire’s call for the creation of an International Treaty on Business and Human Rights.

Trócaire is asking the Irish and UK Governments to actively engage in the process to create such a treaty. We will make sure your voice is heard!
