1. We also need a "Hold Them Accountable in 2022 & Beyond" campaign,

wherein we let the corporations know that we are going to track who they send political contributions to in future elections. Otherwise, this is all just a temporary ad campaign for them.

What we really need is to revoke personhood rights for corporations. They have too much power & the framers never meant for them to have personhood rights just like We the People. They are the only non-living entity to do so. Unions, civics organizations, churches, small businesses, even governments, don't have personhood rights, they have the privileges we grant them. Used to be the same with corporations until the late 1800s.

Here's a really great one page primer on corporate personhood from The Sierra Club.
