Business for Democracy Working Group


Business for Democracy Working Group

ASBN’s Business for Democracy Working Group realized that over the past few years, it has become clear that the role of businesses, large and small, in supporting inclusive democracy is increasingly pertinent. ASBN has long championed inclusivity and equity as enduring principles on which a healthy economy is founded. And a functioning free and fair democracy is an incomparable tool to achieving such a landscape. We believe bold changes must be made to protect American democracy, and businesses can lead the way.  

As a representative of over 250,000 American businesses, the American Sustainable Business Network is committed to pioneering these necessary reforms in order to ensure the survival of democracy.  

The Business for Democracy Working Group will: 

  • Convene interested businesses with a shared commitment to democracy. 
  • Provide information on and lead discussion on the important role businesses can play with employees and the public in rejecting political messaging designed to misinform and instill mistrust and rejection of our democratic process. 
  • Explore the wide array of legislative reforms that can strengthen our democracy. 
  • Establish a method for businesses to be recognized for taking actions to protect our democracy. 

For this campaign to be successful, the ASBN needs your help. Please share this campaign with your customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders in order to ensure the success of American democracy.
