To the editor,
Independent Sector does not speak for all nonprofits nor should it [“Nonprofits awed by White House spin control”, 09.12.05.]
Simply because the Independent Sector leadership is “awed” by wealth and political power is enough reason for the nonprofit community to have alternate groups, means and strategies to impact on the issue of nonprofit accountability.
The Independent Sector leadership, more than a year ago, was publicly quoted as saying that Independent Sector would not encourage federal intervention into the business of nonprofits.
All the more reason that there needs to be groups that have not been co-opted by flattery and invitations to The White House.
