Advancing American Freedom (AAF) today unveiled its latest initiative, targeting the spread of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) regulations.
AAF, along with over 100 conservative leaders and officials, released a letter to Congress, calling on members to support the resolution introduced by Senator Mike Braun and Representative Andy Barr, which would block President Biden’s ERISA rule and protect Americans from dangerous investment practices.
In addition to the letter, Advancing American Freedom also introduced the third in its Future of Freedom legislative agenda series, outlining policies to roll back Biden’s ESG rulemaking, defend American retirees, and empower Americans to vote their shares.
“The woke capital agenda of the Biden administration needs to be cast aside for common sense policies that protect American retirees,” said Advancing American Freedom founder Vice President Mike Pence. “The American people deserve accountability for their hard-earned savings and reassurance that the encroaching of ESG is overturned.”
These efforts in the 118th Congress are a continuation of Vice President Pence and Advancing American Freedom’s leadership in the fight against woke capital.
In April of 2022, Vice President Pence delivered remarks at Rice University, calling out those who sought to weaponize the U.S. financial system to “destroy energy producers from within.”
VP Pence has since written two nationally-syndicated pieces in RealClearMarkets and the Wall Street Journal calling for conservatives to take up the mantle against the sinister ESG agenda.
