What does the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have to do with climate change?

The Chamber is controlled by Big Polluters, poisons politics with its dirty money and opposes every single effort to curb climate pollution.

Join us in standing with small business owners, local chambers of commerce and people all over the country to declare, “The U.S. Chamber Doesn't Speak for Me.”

Sign the pledge and be sure to leave a personalized message, especially if you own, represent or work for a small business.

NEW: Over 1,000  business have already made it clear that The U.S. Chamber of Commerce doesn't speak for them. If you’re a business owner or representative, click here to get on the map.

Want to get more involved?

Help us recruit small businesses in your city or town to join the movement. Grab a friend and visit your favorite local shops and encourage them to join the chorus of business owners saying: “The US Chamber Doesn’t Speak for Me.”

      I own a landscaping business. We practice best management and IPM precisely because of our will to not adversely affect the environment. I have a big problem with this chamber providing funding/lobbyists to promote issues that are not good for the public and our children. Any business that belongs or donates to the Chamber should be boycotted. They are a sham and a tool for corporate criminals.

      It's time for Americans to take their country back from the political demons that control it now.

      You do not speak for me.

      I think you are traitors who do not have the interests of the people of the US at heart. You need to be doing things to help American businesses, not the Chinese, for starters. AND, JUST IN CASE YOU FORGOT, CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL AND YOU ARE HELPING RUIN THE LIVES OF FUTURE GENERATIONS BECAUSE THEY WON'T BE ABLE TO BREATHE.

      A corporation is not democratic. It is not federal. It is not local. It is not moral. It is not traditional. It is not sustainable without state protection. It is not a person. A corporation is not necessary for society to function or produce.
