Global-Exchange-25-Year-AnnIn 1988, four friends co-founded Global Exchange to fight a worldview based on greed, domination, and unvarnished worship of power. Global Exchange was founded to change the hearts and minds of those lured to believe that corporate profit would trickle down to create wealth for all. We aimed to speak truth to power.

For 25 years, we’ve been on the frontlines of the struggle.


Now, we’re celebrating 25 years, and we are proud to honor the dedication of people like you who have sweat and sacrificed to forge a working alternative from the ground up. We’re proud of what we’ve done together.

Have a memorable Global Exchange story? Share your stories, memories, and moments.

But to achieve the visions we set out all those years ago, we’re going to need your continued support to build an unstoppable movement for change for the coming quarter century.

End the drug war. Shine a spotlight on lobbyists. Uncover corporations that profit from the illegal occupation of Palestine. Help communities draft legislation that puts their needs before corporate greed. We’ll be here, as long as it takes.
