Washington, D.C. – In response to a recent press release from the House Financial Services Committee Republicans outlining the jurisdictions of its subcommittees to include, among other things, “identifying best practices and policies that continue to strengthen diversity and inclusion,” also known as Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG), Noah Wall, FreedomWorks Executive Vice President, commented:
“This woke ideology is the antithesis of a free market and meritocratic society in which this country was founded on, and it is appalling to see that Republicans are committing to continue to advance the Left’s radical agenda from the 117th Congress. The Republican House majority was elected by the people to eliminate the Left’s woke, anti-American agenda. Any Republican supportive of advancing woke policies is only doing the Left’s legwork for them. Afterall, ESG is yet another avenue for state control of the economy and of society. FreedomWorks is committed to holding any such member who advances ESG priorities accountable for their actions.”
The mission of FreedomWorks is to build, educate, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty, and the rule of law.
