In an age where information is abundant yet often misleading, KnowMore.org.com stands as a beacon for those seeking clarity on corporate practices and their impact on society. Our mission is simple yet profound: "Every four years, they count your vote. They count your money every day." We believe that every purchase is a vote, a statement of our values, and a reflection of our societal choices.
We are a community rooted in grassroots efforts, committed to unveiling the intricate web of corporate influence on democracy, human rights, fair trade, business ethics, and the environment. Our platform is a treasure trove of meticulously curated data, offering insights into the corporate and political landscapes that shape our world. By empowering you with knowledge, we aim to transform the way consumers interact with businesses, fostering a more informed and conscious consumer base.
Our independence is our strength. We proudly declare our non-affiliation with any political party, candidate, or PAC. Our sole allegiance is to the truth, and our primary objective is to serve as an unbiased, objective source of information on some of the most pressing and debated topics of our era.
Our immediate vision is to evolve into a comprehensive resource where consumers can effortlessly access detailed information about companies, products, and services. Imagine a world where, before making a purchase, you could instantly "Know More" about the ethical practices of the company you're supporting. That's the world we're striving to create.
Our roots trace back to 2004, birthed from the vision of poet and activist B. Dolan. While exploring the nexus between his consumption habits and social justice, Dolan identified a glaring gap: the absence of a centralized platform where consumers could easily access "Responsibility Profiles" of companies. This realization led to the inception of KnowMore.org.com, with fellow poet Sage Francis championing the cause, providing both financial and grassroots support.
We draw inspiration from voices that echo our sentiments and amplify our mission. One such quote that resonates deeply with us is from The Citizen Works Corporate Reform Commission: "In addition to developing an organization to orchestrate state-level laws, we also believe we need a national clearinghouse and institute for scholars and activists who wish to study corporate power and develop innovative solutions to controlling corporations."
Noam Chomsky, a stalwart in the realm of understanding power dynamics, once said, "In the end, there really are only small changes that can be made within the existing institutions... So the answer is, we've got to create alternatives." This sentiment encapsulates our ethos. We are not just a platform; we are an alternative, a movement, a revolution.
At the heart of KnowMore.org.com lies a commitment to raising awareness of corporate malpractices and serving as a catalyst for direct action against unchecked corporate power. While Ethical Consumerism is a step towards corporate reform, it's essential to recognize that the challenge of unchecked corporate power is systemic. It transcends any single boycott or campaign.
Join us in this journey of enlightenment and empowerment. Together, let's redefine consumerism, champion corporate responsibility, and build a world where every purchase reflects our collective values and aspirations. Welcome to KnowMore.org.com.
