Why is a healthy democracy important to achieving your company’s purpose?

Government policy plays a large role in the lives of children who are removed from their homes because of abuse or neglect. The impact of those policies may affect a young person for many years and will be a determining factor in a successful transition when they become an adult. A healthy democracy means elected officials are held accountable to make policies effective and efficient to meet the needs of children and families supported by government programs.

Why are voting rights important to your business?

Voting rights are vital for our business because we want policies that continue to evolve as the needs of the community evolve. In order for that to happen, everyone in the community needs to have a voice in who is making the policy decisions. We expect our business, and other B-Corps, to continue to find new ways to solve new problems and we should have the same expectations for our representatives. Policies that support the community only happen when the whole community is able to participate.

How do you encourage your employees to become more civically engaged?

Our company has put its name behind several bills that we believe will bring about better outcomes for young people who have been impacted by foster care and/or homelessness. We make sure to share this support with our employees in meetings and our communication forums so they know our leadership believes it to be important to be civically engaged. We hope this encourages them to find causes and policies that are important to them and that they take action on those policies.

What are your company’s other projects to help support voters, protect elections, and overcome political divides?

Our organization recently took part in America Talks. We encouraged everyone in our organization to participate and those that did had very positive feedback. We hope to take part in more projects like that through Business for America so we can continue to encourage our stakeholders to support a healthy democracy.

Why did you decide to become a member of Business for America?

We joined Business for America because we feel business has a powerful role in creating a healthy democracy. A healthy democracy leads to more effective policies being made that impact our business, mission, and all of our stakeholders. We wanted to join other businesses who felt the same about their role in the democracy and have found that at Business for America.
