To stop corporate huckstering and commercial values from overshadowing communities’ organic cultural values and ideals. To strengthen noncommercial culture.
Do you feel like you live in a spam culture? We do. At Commercial Alert, we oppose corporate efforts to dangle an ad in front of our eyes at every moment. By polluting our environment with advertising and consumerism, corporations infringe on otherwise vibrant arenas, from the literature we read to the sports we watch to the artistic expression we enjoy.
Corporations attack our ability to think and act without constant pestering. Commercial Alert fights for the right to be free of a constant barrage of commercial messages, especially misleading and deceptive ones, spawned by corporations seeking to profit.
