Greenpeace USA measures companies actions and inactions to protect voting rights in Dollars vs. Democracy Scorecard

Over the last year, hundreds of companies have made halfhearted attempts to appear socially conscious by releasing statements in support of voting rights and the Movement for Black Lives.

... In reality, many of these companies are spending a combined millions of dollars on extremist legislators pushing anti-voting and anti-protest bills. All of this adds up to a clear takeaway: corporations are complicit when the lawmakers they give campaign contributions to use tactics to squash protests and disenfranchise voters to silence Black, Brown, and Indigenous people.

... The Dollars vs. Democracy scorecard reflects the specific actions (and inactions) that companies have taken for our democracy at a time when it’s under attack.
