Thousands of Nonprofits to Congress: Don't Repeal the Johnson Amendment

Printer-friendly version

In a news release, National Council of Nonprofits President and CEO Tim Delaney emphasized that nonpartisanship helps separate charitable missions from political debate.

“Nonpartisanship is vital to the work of charitable nonprofits,” Delaney said. “It enables organizations to address community challenges and invites the problem-solving skills of all residents, without the distractions of party labels and the divisive partisan politics that currently bedevils our country.”

The signatories noted that public sentiment is largely in their favor on the issue. A recent poll conducted on behalf of Independent Sector found that 72 percent of U.S. voters want to keep the Johnson Amendment in place, with support at 78 percent among Hillary Clinton voters and 66 percent among Trump voters.
