AT&T: Stop funding anti- democracy, anti-abortion lawmakers
To: Charlene Lake, SVP-Corporate Social Responsibility and Chief Sustainability Officer
Why is this important?
Just days after the January 6 insurrection, corporations were under intense pressure to halt all donations to the Republicans who tried to overturn the 2020 election results and instigated the violence and death at the U.S. Capitol. So AT&T promised to do the same.
Now a report has revealed that almost immediately, the telecommunications giant created loopholes to indirectly fund these extremists in D.C.
One year later, AT&T is back to funding these same politicians who are parroting Trump’s Big Lie, and they never stopped funding the politicians behind abortion bans and disinformation across the country, either.
It’s clear AT&T is betting that consumers aren’t paying attention. Let’s prove them wrong.
