Do you have information about:
The Freedom Foundation is a radical right wing group funded by the Koch Brothers. Their main goal is to weaken labor unions in order to advance conservative causes and win elections for Republicans. This behavior is in direct violation of the organization’s 501(c)(3) status, and the Northwest Accountability Project has filed complaints with state and federal authorities demanding an investigation.
To achieve their goal they have been trying to obtain the personal information of workers, and uses that information to harass workers at their homes. Their actions show a blatant disregard for the privacy of these workers, and their incessant badgering puts families at risk.
Despite their deep pockets, the Freedom Foundation’s campaign has been a complete failure which has forced them to resort to nefarious tactics. Union members all across Oregon and Washington have reported incidences of Freedom Foundation staff visiting their workplaces unannounced and even coming right to the doorsteps of their homes to harass and intimidate them. We even received reports that the Freedom Foundation lies about who they are, claiming they are union organizers.
The Freedom Foundation has done a poor job of vetting staff. The staffer who oversees union member outreach in Washington State has a violent criminal record and has even joked about bringing a gun with him to the homes of workers. Other staff have made disturbing and derogatory statements about women, communities of color and the LGBTQ community.
