Everything That's Wrong About the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in One Infographic

So, surely you're now outraged and wondering, What can I do?

First, if you haven't already, go to Chamber.350.org, add your voice, and declare that the U.S. Chamber doesn't speak for you.

Second, fan out in your community and recruit local businesses and even local Chambers of Commerce to disassociate themselves with the national Chamber. Here's a comprehensive organizing toolkit that will give you everything you need to get started.

If you have time tonight, there's a national grassroots business recruitment call. More details:

  • When: Tuesday, March 22, 9pm EDT, 6pm PST
     
  • Where: Call (712)-432-0075
    Use passcode: 855149

Finally, save the date: April 18th. On that Monday, people around the country will organize and gather at strategic local events to expose the US Chamber's dirty deeds and, ultimately, to diminish its power.
