The Trump administration’s rule change allows mega-donors and dark money to influence American politics from the shadows. This resolution repeals the rule to require disclosure and prevent the Trump administration from trying to change the rules again.
Making a donation to a non-profit is a form of free, protected speech. Requiring non-profits to disclose their donor lists would have a chilling effect on Americans’ political engagement, as donors could fear retaliation or intimidation by those who disagree with them.
