Among ICAN’s highest priorities is a commitment to civil justice and consumer protections. Every issue on which ICAN works, from health care to environmental issues to energy policies, is affected by the civil justice system. In the current political climate, and at this time of economic uncertainty, it is more important than ever for ICAN to continue its fight for the rights of citizens to protect themselves through the courts.
