As the voice of business, the Chamber’s core purpose is to fight for free enterprise before Congress, the White House, regulatory agencies, the courts, the court of public opinion, and governments around the world. It runs the Campaign for Free Enterprise, a multiyear effort to support free enterprise through national advertising; grassroots advocacy; citizen, community, and youth engagement; and research and ideas leadership.
The Chamber is also active in shaping legal policy through the National Chamber Litigation Center (NCLC), its in-house law firm, and through the Institute for Legal Reform (ILR), a national campaign to make the legal system simpler and fairer.
Through its advocacy efforts, the U.S. Chamber keeps the focus on creating a positive environment for businesses, including small businesses. Its fight on behalf of free enterprise, as well as its efforts to draw attention to abuses against business in the legal system, make it an invaluable advocate for small businesses.
