Professor Joe Mead published an essay at HistPhil about donor disclosure requirements for fundraising charities in the pending Supreme Court case, Americans for Prosperity Foundation v. California. Professor Mead argues that the case fits within a long history of government regulation of charitable solicitation, including nefarious attempts to target the NAACP, out-of-state charities, and organizations such as advocating for LGBT equality. Professor Mead also describes the current regulatory context and suggests potential implications for the Court’s ruling.
