2018 has been a watershed year in activism, where we've seen individuals come together to us their voices, their wallets, and technology to demand something better. (Starbucks banned straws, you guys. Companies are listening.)

When corporations listen to the demands of their customer base, things change, and quickly. We've assembled experts who can talk plainly about corporate social responsibility, talk about the brands who have responded most deftly to consumer demands, and how, as consumers, we can hold companies accountable to the standards we need for society to be well.
