We tackle corporate capture.
Corporate influence on government, including our Congress, our agencies and our courts, can lead to disastrous consequences for the protection of rights and can exacerbate inequality.
Where corporations seek to lobby, minimize or undercut regulations, exploit tax loopholes, or engage in litigation tactics to silence civil society voices, they are jeopardizing the core values of our democracy and the institutions that guard it.
We must monitor and push back against the capture of our institutions by corporate interests who seek to put profit before people.
Washington, D.C. (May 24, 2017) – Masquerading as a “New Foundation for American Greatness,” President Trump’s budget proposal for 2018 is a direct attack on working families, the environment, and basic human rights at home and abroad. The International Corporate Accountability Roundtable (ICAR) calls on Congress to reject President Trump’s catastrophic budget proposal and enact a bipartisan budget deal that supports workers, upholds human rights, and protects the environment.
