Excessive corporate influence on politics

Excessive corporate influence on politics

Published: September 12, 2014

AFSC is changing the conversation in 2016.

Asking candidates early on in the presidential nominating process for their stance on important issues can influence the national conversation in 2016.

In the lead-up to the first caucuses in Iowa and the first primary in New Hampshire, AFSC will shine a spotlight on the excessive influence of major corporations. Our staff in Iowa and New Hampshire have already begun training local activists to “bird-dog” the candidates, asking questions at public forums about the impacts of corporate money on policy.

Nationally, we will promote and amplify facts that show how corporate influence creates dangerous policies, and that militarism, incarceration, and detention destabilize communities in the U.S. and across the globe.
