Greenpeace is the leading independent campaigning organization that uses peaceful protest and creative communication to expose global environmental problems and to promote solutions that are essential to a green and peaceful future.
Greenpeace was first founded in the United States in 1975, when Greenpeace San Francisco opened, followed by groups in Seattle, Portland, and Denver. In 1979, these offices merged into one entity to become “Greenpeace USA.”
Project Hot Seat was a campaign started by Greenpeace. Its goal is to apply intense pressure on members of The United States Congress in order to implement policies that will curb and cut our greenhouse gas emissions, and what Phil Radford, Greenpeace Executive Director said was the "kind of organizing that is going to be key to making the environmental movement into a viable political force in Congress and around the country."
