Corporate Partners

Consumer Action's website describes its "extensive experience in partnering with corporations and government agencies to provide them with a wide range of professional services, including writing, translating, publicity and distribution." The organization's "staff members who work in these [low-income, minority, immigrant, disabled and senior] communities will review your materials, evaluate your consumer outreach programs and help you design new and effective ways to reach current and new customers." [2]

Consumer Action's multilingual, "effective education and outreach projects targeting all consumers" seem to be based around publications distributed for free, through a "national network of more than 6,500 community-based organizations nationwide." The organization promises "a cost-effective and wide-reaching" promotional campaign promoting these "free educational materials in the mainstream and in-language media." [3]
