We will deliver this letter with thousands of signatures to every member of the Chamber Board:

Dear Chamber of Commerce Board Member:

I am writing as a concerned American to ask that you immediately resign from the Board of the United States Chamber of Commerce because of its very public stance against important initiatives on environmental protection, financial regulation, health care, and fair elections. Since October 1st, five major companies have resigned from the Chamber or its Board because of these dangerous positions, including Nike, Apple, Pacific Gas & Electric, Public Service of New Mexico and Exelon. As Nike stated, "We fundamentally disagree with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on the issue of climate change, and their recent action challenging the E.P.A. is inconsistent with our view that climate change is an issue in need of urgent action." Many other companies are considering following the lead of these game-changers.

Rather than work to create long-term solutions to these vexing problems, the Chamber has announced that it is spending more than $100 million to defeat initiatives that would address them. The Chamber also insists that corporations are entitled to "personhood" and should be allowed to spend unlimited funds on elections. Clearly, the Chamber does not want health care for all, a clean environment for our children, regulation of the financial system that caused the devastation of our economy, or fair elections.

Recent published reports make clear that the Chamber is under the control of a small group of partisan insiders, including one who recently demanded that the EPA conduct a "Scopes monkey trial" on global warming. I hope that you do not share these views and that you do not want to be associated with them.

Our country needs innovation, vision, and enlightened initiatives that represent a clear break from past policies that no longer work. The Chamber is hanging on to outmoded ideas that are not applicable in the 21st century. Surely, you see your role as building America's future, not in propping up an organization that is now on the wrong side of history.

Please take this opportunity to resign from the Chamber Board and let the Chamber know why you have done so.

Sincerely,
