Our message to Corporate America:

Live your values.
Drop the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Across the country, democracy and voting rights are under attack.

Businesses said they would speak up to protect our fundamental right as Americans, but there’s one problem: they’re still members of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a group with a long history of fueling anti-democratic actions.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce:

A History of Anti-Democratic Actions

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has a 
history of opposing voting rights and supporting politicians and groups that 
back voter suppression tactics. It also had a hand in normalizing actions that threatened the foundations of our democracy.

  • The U.S. Chamber backpedaled and resumed political giving to lawmakers that voted against certifying the 2020 presidential election results immediately after the deadly January 6th insurrection— a move that supercharged doubts about the election’s legitimacy.

  • The U.S. Chamber spent $129.24 million as it lobbied against both versions of the For The People Act in 2019 and 2021, legislation meant to expand access to the ballot box, reduce the influence of big money, and strengthen ethics rules for public servants.

  • The U.S. Chamber poured over $7.4 million into the Republican State Leadership Committee, a group that launched a so-called “voter integrity” commission whose proposals experts say will disproportionately harm voters of color.

  • In 2010, The U.S. Chamber hatched a conservative-led redistricting project known as REDMAP, which targeted state legislative races and was condemned by voting rights advocates for reducing the political representation of Black voters.

  • The U.S. Chamber spent at least $56,000 to directly back prominent opponents of voting rights reform like House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, Rep. Bob Goodlatte and Sen. Ted Cruz.

A Call to Action

Corporate America: Live Your Values

On April 14, a group of over 500 companies and CEOs pledged their support for the right to vote in a full page 
New York Times ad. They called voting the “lifeblood of democracy” and the “fundamental right of all Americans”.

Many of those same companies claim to embrace these rights as part of their corporate values but 
have yet to break ties with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
