Business for America (BFA) is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) network of business leaders advancing policy and technology solutions to strengthen representative democracy and modernize government. BFA believes that a well-functioning democracy will help build a more competitive, innovative business climate and deliver better outcomes for all Americans. BFA educates and mobilizes business leaders and businesses to support reforms in the way our elections and politics are conducted. BFA has team members in San Francisco, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, and Denver.
BFA’s mission is to bring business into the ‘democracy movement’. We believe that business has a civic responsibility to help assure that politics itself is healthy, functional, and able to play its fundamental role in civic health and civic sustainability. This is not about businesses using their political power to advance corporate interests; it is about businesses working to strengthen our democracy. Most business people are interested in a political system that fosters greater competition and produces results that address real problems.
BFA was founded on the principle that democratic structural reforms are needed for exactly the same reason: to fix our broken politics. Business has a strong interest in ending the extreme, entrenched polarization in our politics. While it is our politics that gives us solutions to our civic challenges, it is our democracy that gives us our politics. In essence, BFA is saying that business has a civic responsibility to support reforms that can make politics actually work.
