This fall, join Corporate Accountability Lab in our travels around the world, fighting corporate evildoers! We’ll be visiting at least five countries, showcasing different aspects of CAL’s work as we go, and posting photos and videos of our capers. But we’re not telling you where we’re going in advance--it’s up to you, gumshoes, to figure it out!

If you’re not familiar with CAL, our mission is to drive innovation in the human rights field by applying a lab model to legal design, collaboration, and research. We repurpose commercial law to address abuses in global supply chains, and build toward a future where victims have enforceable rights and access to remedy. You can learn about some of our current projects here, but since we’re a legal design shop, some of our work stays behind the scenes.

At each stop on our journey, you’ll get to learn about CAL and why corporate accountability work is so important. To follow our travels, like our page on Facebook, follow us on twitter, and sign up for our email list.

Where the money goes: International human rights work, even on a lean budget like ours, costs real money! An essential part of our work is taking the legal strategies we develop to the communities who can use them for feedback and collaboration. This way, we’re creating strategies that don’t just win cases, but that support social movements and reflect the needs of those most impacted. Your contributions will pay for plane tickets, hotels, interpreters, drivers, and other costs incurred in these trips. And keep any eye on this page, as we will be announcing some special rewards for our top donors as we go.

Want to know where we’re headed first? Check out our intro video for some hints. See you on our first caper!

We've hit the end of our journey, gumshoes. Our final caper is to a small, mountainous country with a population the size of New York City. Can you guess where we are?

Charity has spanned both East and West Africa in the last month. With stops in Kenya and Côte d’Ivoire in the books, this week she joined Marian University students in Indianapolis to experiment with the ins and outs of global supply chains. Check out our third caper in the "Where in the World is CAL?" campaign, gumshoes!

Corporate Accountability Lab engages with students to show that poor working conditions and abusive supply chains are not an inevitable facet of the global economy. There are structural problems that drive poor wages and conditions--problems that are solvable.

Hello private eyes! We hope you saw our intro video and are ready to join us on our first caper. Your clues were that key agricultural exports include coffee, tea and flowers, and that tea workers from this country sued Unilever in UK courts. Where is she? Watch the video to find out!
