Trump Wants To Kill Johnson Amendment On Political Speech

Printer-friendly version

The National Council of Nonprofits issued a statement today expressing strong opposition to the latest attempts to dismantle the Johnson Amendment.

“Nonpartisanship is vital to the work of charitable nonprofits,” said Tim Delaney, president of the Council of Nonprofits. “It enables organizations to address community challenges, and invites the problem-solving skills of all residents, without the distractions of party labels and the caustic partisanship that is bedeviling our country,” he said.


Delaney suggested more productive outlets for their concern, such as guaranteeing a seat at the table in policy discussions for a sector that employs 10 percent of the workforce; preserving and expanding charitable giving incentives in any tax reform measures; and considering the impact of domestic spending cuts on nonprofits that already subsidize governments at all levels.
