TAKE ACTION TODAY
Express your strong opposition to politicizing our sector by contacting your U.S. Representative.
Email or tweet your U.S. Representatives to deliver this simple message:
Partisanship has NO place in charitable organizations – whether houses of worship, charitable nonprofits, or private foundations. Vote to remove Section 112 from the FSGG bill.
To email: To find emailing information for your U.S. Representative, you can check their website’s “contact” page. If you don’t know who your representative is, visit www.contactingcongress.org. Once there, you can enter your zip code, scroll down to find your representative, and click on the “email” icon, as highlighted in this screengrab:
Call your U.S. Representative and tell them:
The vast nonprofit community strongly supports the Johnson Amendment, the longstanding law that protects charitable organizations, houses of worship, and foundations from caustic, partisan politics. I expect you to oppose the FSGG Fiscal Year 2019 appropriations bill rider at Section 112 that would repeal or weaken the Johnson Amendment. Public trust is critical to the vitality and continued success of the charitable sector, and our credibility will be first victim once partisan politics are introduced into nonprofit work. Nonprofits are counting on you to preserve nonprofit nonpartisanship.
To call: Reach your U.S. Representative by dialing the House switchboard at 202-225-3121 and following the automated instructions.
