Tell Vanguard to Keep Retirement Savings Out of Secret Money Politics
Corporations are funneling an unprecedented amount of secret money into our elections. Even worse, they’re doing it with our retirement savings.
The Vanguard Group, the largest manager of retirement savings in the country, represents the 401(k) accounts of millions of Americans. It owns about a quarter of the stock market.
In the coming days, Vanguard will have the chance to vote in favor of political spending disclosure at Exxon Mobil’s 2017 shareholder meeting. This could be a major victory in the fight against dark money.
As a trusted steward of the public’s savings, Vanguard has the power — and the obligation — to combat Citizens United’s corrosion of our democracy.
