AMAC Exclusive – By Aaron Flanigan
In a just-released groundbreaking report, 1792 Exchange—a corporate “wokeism” watchdog—assessed the policies of more than 1,000 companies, hoping the information will give every American a much-needed chance to evaluate corporations’ intrusions into the political arena.
In a move certain to upset corporate CEOs who are rarely held accountable for their political activism, the report, titled “Spotlight Report: Corporate Bias Ratings” classifies each company in its assessment as either “high risk,” “medium risk,” or “low risk.” Examples of “high risk” companies, according to the press release, include well-known corporations like Bank of America, Etsy, JPMorgan Chase, PayPal, YouTube, and Amazon. Company-specific reports, which can be downloaded for free on the 1792 Exchange website, outline in detail problematic actions undertaken by each corporation.
Allstate, for instance—which the group rates as “high risk”—“fired an employee over religious beliefs and statements made outside the workplace,” “suspended PAC donations to Members of Congress who objected to the  election certification,” “streamlined funds to Planned Parenthood,” and “created ads promoting LGBTQ values.” Reports of each company can be accessed by clicking this link, clicking “Add Report to Card” for desired companies, and then clicking “Download Reports.”
“The corporate ratings incorporate some high-profile examples of cancellation, such as former Ambassador for International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback getting de-banked by JPMorgan Chase, as well as many other examples that never made the front page but were equally harmful,” the press release said. “Based upon the research already conducted, 1792 Exchange expects that many more individuals and organizations have been canceled or denied access to corporate services and have not yet shared their stories and experiences publicly.”
In an interview with AMAC Newsline, Paul Fitzpatrick, the president of 1792 Exchange, emphasized that although many “corporations take some actions openly under the ESG banner, some do not.” As such, he said, the group is asking “everyone with a public platform to publicize this free tool so hundreds of thousands of Americans use it to protect themselves and encourage corporations to move back toward neutral.”
Fitzpatrick noted that corporations’ embrace of the ESG ideology can be traced back to many of the cultural changes of the last several decades. “Media and academia began changing the narrative, pushing the envelope and redefining norms,” he said. “Corporate executives were highly influenced by the cultural shift. In the 1990s, corporations also began to require diversity and sensitivity training driven through HR departments.” This pattern ultimately led to companies’ realization that they faced “reputational risk based on employee grievances,” paving the way for the dominance of ESG ideology and the formation of what he called a “a grievance industry.”
“We want American companies to be highly profitable, apolitical, and welcoming for their employees, customers and suppliers,” Fitzpatrick said. Those who have been subjected to cancellation or denial of service can share their story either privately with 1792 Exchange or publicly using the hashtag “#CanceledToo.”
When asked how Americans who are interested in the services of 1792 Exchange can help or otherwise contribute to its mission, Fitzpatrick offered two suggestions: “Americans who want to support us directly, should visit our website at www.1792Exchange.com and click the red donate button in the upper right-hand corner. However, more important than that, we want Americans to use the Corporate Bias Ratings. Look up your bank, web hosting company, payment processor, insurance provider… and if you don’t like what you read, print a copy and take it with you to the local branch and politely ask them to change their policy.”
The primary purpose for 1792 Exchange’s corporate evaluations, according to a press release, is to determine how likely a company is “to cancel a client or deny services based on ideological or religious belief” and is “intended to “help organizations understand their vulnerability and likelihood of being denied service by their vendors, including banking, IT, and insurance, due to their religious or political beliefs.” This data compilation makes up the largest of its kind for assessments of woke corporations.
And by every available indication, the group’s concerns are widely shared. According to a 2021 poll conducted by Scott Rasmussen, 66 percent of American adults believe companies should avoid taking positions on political issues, but only 43 percent claim to know the political positions of the companies they patronize.
Until every American is aware of what causes their money is being used to advance, every American opposed to the progressive agenda should consider lending their support to 1792 Exchange and other organizations committed to bringing the dangers of woke capitalism to a halt. In the end, the health of our society and the strength of our nation may depend on it.

I tried the link in the story and it worked to look up a specific company by name, but the sort to look by industry wasn’t working.
While I applaud them for attempting to list Woke companies, be careful and cross check the results with other sites, because some companies I consider Woke aren’t listed correctly in my opinion.
Ally does not do ESG. Joe Street they on the Woke list. Actually, what’s the criteria for being on your list. Thanks!
I have been using cancelthiscompany.com and refer to it regularly!
I just went to that site. Looks like all bigger banks are bad!! Thank you for posting that site.
Yes, you are correct, I got out of my Big Bank federal controlled 401K, checking, savings then reinvested into my local Credit Union 35 years ago, best move I ever made, love it. I also buy 1 oz Silver ingots as a great investment and can hold My silver in My hand 24/7 or use as cash money. All computer debits will be controlled by the feds at both ends ending federal dollars.
Does anyone know a bank that is not woke? I see that Chase and Citi are both bad (according to the list).
I’ve been with my two local credit unions not controlled by government for many 35 years. I will never use Federal Banks again with their high cost, multiple fee’s void of heart without customer care, especially these days.
The new bank in Oklahoma opening in March. Old Glory Bank. Look em up.
I do not want to do business with any of the WOKE companies. They will only hurt the American taxpayer and their families. So sad…
Thanks, AMAC, for including a link to the 1792 Exchange.
I have saved it — and expect to use it often.
I went to the website and signed up. I boycott a lot of companies that deny a persons right to worship and anything to do with the LGBT. I know that I will not put Coca-Cola out of business but it simply makes me feel better. Christ will handle the issue when He returns.
I know we are supposed to write a letter to our 401k agents to stop using our funds to invest in ESG companies and stocks but I don’t know how to legally word the letter. Can an attorney give us a short sample letter that we can copy to send into our 401 k company?
Its really sad that these hate filled Marxists have penetrated most of the US companies that we all use, I fear Satan is using these companies to destroy America as he brings about his one world government to rule the world. Everybody says they hate slavery yet that’s exactly what all this will result in!! WAKE UP America or is it already too late.
tried to click the + but said I already did…
Every Conservative in the country needs access to this information. I try to make sure all my business goes to Patriots, not Commies!!
How about a law banning businesses from contributing money to politicians?
That way politicians don’t owe businesses special favors. They’re supposed to represent the people of the states that elected them that’s who they should be first obligated to period!
Right on! Each candidate should get exactly the same amount of money to run their campaign as well. H. Walker lost GA because he was outspent about 20 to 1 with most of the Left money coming from out of state. The election was bought & paid for by the Lefty Communists. Put the 85K IRS workers to work and monitor fair campaign funding.
Every Conservatrive , group, persons etc should download & share
Ammo for our side
Exactly why I cancelled my AMEX card 2 years ago and no longer buy Coke or Disney products. Just sent this website to most of my friends and family.
Environment, Social equity, and Governmance.
Exactly why I cancelled AMEX and Sears 38 years ago.
I could not find whee ESG is explained. What does ESG mean?
ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance.
Environmental, Social, Governance: All typical leftist areas leftist want all to conform too!
We should know how our $$$$ are being used. You wouldn’t give money to someone to get illegal drugs for themselves or for a prostitute so why should you give your $$$$ to a company that supports things that you don’t believe in.
Lots of good information!
I have boycotted companies for years for this reason. And many now are closing or are downsizing for they are almost bankrupt. Due to many of us refusing to shop there.
I will not buy or use products or go to stores that make judgement on other people. When is buying a pair of pants or a dress political. They are dictating to us and we can dictate with our wallets to them. There are more of us than of them.
Have Been Telling People about AMAC
Hobby Lobby should be at the top of this list.
Hobby Lobby has fought hard to earn its place on this list of conservative companies. You might remember it as the company that took the abortion lobby to court and won, fighting for the right to not pay for abortions. It’s owned by unabashed Christians and certainly deserves our support.
So, next time you need to buy a toy for your kids or some arts and crafts supplies for fun or a school project, don’t buy them from Walmart or Target. Buy them from Hobby Lobby. If you do so, you’ll help support a conservative company.
I love that Hobby Lobby is a principled, Christian company, however, it’s disheartening that so much of their products are from China.
Hobby Lobby may be the most unwoke company in America. Do you say that because it is a Christian owned company and you hate Christians?
What’s wrong with hating Christian’s?
most of them commit crimes.
Christian is a very broad word. For the most part people call themselves Christians because they are not Hindu, Moslem or some other highly recognized religion. These people do not actually follow the Christian faith and if called upon would be hard pressed to define their belief. A Christian is one who believes that Jesus Christ died and rose again. We believe that Jesus died for our sins and that we are saved by accepting that fact. All of this said, we are human, we make mistakes….so “most of them”?…..a pretty broad and non-factual statement.
He’s just a Soros STOOGE. What do you expect?
Don’t wait until it’s too late to accept Christ as your Savior. People who do will spend eternity regretting it. He loves and wants to save everyone, but He gave us free will, so the decision is up to us. He died for the sins of all, but we can take or leave His offer. He is so wonderful.
Please proofread and correct your comment so we Christians can agree with you. You need to insert “not” after the word “do.”
I meant to imply people who do wait until it’s too late to accept Christ will spend eternity regretting it.
