Business for Democracy and ASBC Lead Effort to Overturn Citizens United v. FEC

The Business for Democracy Campaign, which the American Sustainable Business Council is spearheading in partnership with Free Speech for People is tackling the compelling issue of corporate contributions to political campaigns.

The U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United v. FEC decision on January 21, 2010 allows corporations to spend unlimited funds to support or oppose candidates for political office, overturning campaign finance laws in place for decades. The Business for Democracy campaign is an initiative of business leaders and their companies who believe this ruling is in direct conflict with American democratic principles and a serious threat to good government. The campaign supports the four members of the Supreme Court and the 80 percent of Americans who disagree with the decision (Washington Post poll, Feb. 17, 2010).

If you'd like your business to join this effort, you can sign the statement of support here or here.

A Business Call for a New Economy

A Business Call for a New Economy

Greetings,

Thanks to all of you who have contributed to the development of this “Call for a New Economy,” which we aim to present to the White House and Congress.

We understand that this can be treated as an evolving document. In addition, we also see this as the start of the process to develop a platform of Actions and Policies. We aim to begin that process directly after our Business Summit.

We welcome and encourage your involvement.

All the best,
David
