2ndVote recently praised Pfizer (1.67) for putting customers first – and not engaging in divisive messaging – by choosing not to attack Georgia’s election integrity legislation. Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, who initially opposed the new law, walked back his stance following criticism of Pfizer and other companies which were found to be in error about election integrity laws in several states.
2ndVote will be issuing more statements like this one on positive behavior by businesses. After all, we often bring attention to corporations that wade into controversial issues and push divisive messages. It’s only right that we also give credit to companies that don’t cave to woke pressure and focus on the wellbeing of their employees and customers. And when we see that a company has made a commitment to doing better, we’ll support them and encourage them to keep doing the right thing.
Some companies, like Delta Airlines (2.00) have seen what can happen when they try to appease radical activists. Delta was criticized first for appearing to support, then directly opposing, the Georgia law, but the company received severe blowback from both customers and legislators. Since then, Delta has taken a step back from the issue. 2ndVote encourages Americans to choose alternatives like Frontier Airlines (3.00) that focus on customer safety and service and avoid getting involved in divisive debates. Consumers and businesses alike should follow the example of companies like PureTalk USA (4.00) and Cabela’s (3.33), which deliver quality customer services while being a champion for American values.
This new program needs you to succeed. Without grassroots supporters to sign our statements, we’re just another non-profit trying to protect American values. Your signature will tell companies that their customer base is paying attention and that they can count on the business of values-driven consumers if they strive to be neutral, and send positive pro-America messages.
Pfizer did the right thing by not commenting on the Georgia law. Be sure to let them know you support their decision to not get involved in divisive matters. You can call them at their corporate office at (212) 733-2323 or write to them at 235 East 42nd Street, New York, NY 10017. Moving forward, we encourage Pfizer and other companies to stick to providing customer value, instead of trying to cater to constantly changing societal values. We’ll be watching, and they’ll see rewards for doing right.
