Insurrection Related Information

  • Donated to 1/6 Organizers

Executive Summary

Many corporations publicly condemned the insurrection and those lawmakers who voted against certification, and some pledged to no longer donate to their campaigns. But as time has passed, the condemnation from corporate America over January 6 and the Big Lie appears to be abating. Some of the corporations that pledged to stop funding the members who objected to certifying the election are quietly finding ways to give again. – AccountableUS

Statement from WestRock

WestRock’s PAC makes its contributions based on strict criteria and assesses candidates through a variety of business and community-support factors. WestRock’s PAC does not expect to make political contributions until the newly sworn in 117th Congress works to formalize their agenda, and we are able to determine which members of congress align with our principles of support.

WestRock Senior Manager of Corporate Communications and Public Relations, Courtney James
