Season 4 - Episode 5
Corporate Bias Rating
This week #TheBassSisters talk with Paul Fitzpatrick, President of 1792 Exchange, about the impact and danger of corporate bias. 1792 Exchange's mission is to protect Americans in the marketplace from corporations that push "woke" agendas and silence the free expression of small businesses and employees who do not pass their ideological litmus test.
We have seen the headlines of Americans losing their livelihoods and being stripped from marketplace platforms, from banking institutions to social media platforms, after exercising their first amendment right of freedom of speech.
1792 Exchange recently reviewed and rated over 1,000 companies on their policies and practices to determine how likely the company will cancel a contract, boycott, divest or deny services based on views or beliefs.
By visiting the 1792 Exchange website linked here, a small business can search to see how their vendors rate. Companies are rated Low, Medium and High risk.
Paul Fitzpatrick is President of 1792 Exchange which is an alliance of families protecting faith-based and conservative institutions and philanthropy, and helping corporations move back toward neutral to protect free exercise, free speech, and free enterprise.
During his previous season, Paul served on Capitol Hill. He was Deputy Chief of Staff for U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler of Georgia and Chief of Staff for Congressman Mark Meadows of North Carolina.
Before working in government, Paul served in the nonprofit sector over two decades, including Freedom Partners and Family Research Council. And prior to that, he worked for Xerox Corporation.
Paul earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a minor in History from Trinity College in Connecticut and a Masters of Business Administration from Marymount University in Virginia.
Paul and his wife have four children and a daughter-in-law. They are active in many aspects of their church.
