U.S. Right to Know works globally to expose corporate wrongdoing and government failures that threaten our health, our food system, and our environment. In our research, we gather court documents, study regulatory filings, and make Freedom of Information requests to state, federal, and international agencies.
The documents we have obtained from public institutions have generated worldwide media coverage and exposed numerous secret industry strategies, payments, and collaborations that undermine the integrity of scientific, academic, political, and regulatory institutions.
When public agencies fail to comply with open records laws, we go to court to compel the release of documents and data. We have filed many lawsuits against federal and state agencies for violating Freedom of Information laws. These lawsuits are part of our investigations into the chemical and ultra-processed food industries, and our research to uncover what is known about the origins of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, leaks or mishaps at biosafety labs, and the risks of gain-of-function research.
