Boeing, Stop Funding Those Who Undermine Democracy

David L. Calhoun and Boeing Board of Directors

In America, voters decide the outcome of our elections. But some politicians lied and incited a deadly attack on Jan. 6, hoping to overturn the election.

Now these extremists are trying to take away our freedom to vote and plotting to sabotage future elections.

No one who attacks our country should hold elected office, and no company that claims to support values like integrity, inclusion and respect should support these extremist politicians.

That’s why we’re calling on Boeing to stop making donations and ask for the return of $289,000 in corporate PAC contributions to those members of Congress who voted to overturn the election.

Boeing, Support Our Fundamental Democratic Values

We call on Boeing to immediately and permanently withdraw your funding of all the seditionist Members of Congress no later than April 29, 2022.

On January 6th, 2021, 147 Members of Congress voted against the certification of the official results of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, won by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.This was an act of sedition that attempted to undermine the vote of the people and the democratic government of the United States of America.

One week later, the Boeing Company responded with a statement that read in part, “We are not making political contributions at this time. We will continue to carefully evaluate future contributions to ensure that we support those who not only support our company, but also uphold our country’s most fundamental principles.” Since that time however, Boeing’s Political Action Committee (PAC) has donated a combined $289,000 to those very same Members of Congress who voted to deny the American people the fundamental right of self-governance.

On your website, Boeing states that your company values include “integrity,” “transparency,” and “being held accountable.” Your actions in this instance violate all of those principles, and if not corrected will lead to an erosion of trust and support among your employees, affiliates, and customers.

Therefore, we the undersigned call upon the Boeing Company to keep your pledge to support only those elected representatives who will uphold our country's fundamental principles, and to cease any funding of the congressional seditionists. By doing so, Boeing will be aligned with the values of American workers, customers, and the democratic system that governs these United States.
