To strengthen and unify the voice of the independent grocer on Capitol Hill, the National Grocers Association (NGA) has officially launched a new Political Action Center. Heading into the 2014 mid-term elections, the NGA Political Action Center will enable independent grocers to connect directly with their federal legislators on a number of platforms, while also integrating NGA grassroots efforts with the NGA Grocers PAC.

“The independent grocery channel plays a significant role in the nation’s economy through the generation of billions in sales and the creation of reliable jobs. Legislators and policymakers make decisions that impact our businesses on almost a daily basis, and it is critical that our industry is active and unified in the political process to ensure our interests are well represented,” said Peter J. Larkin, NGA’s president and CEO.

The NGA Political Action Center will serve as a central site to educate and involve independent grocers in the political process through timely action alerts on important industry issues, legislative scorecards and the most up-to-date election information on candidates nationwide. It also gives employers the opportunity to develop and deploy new cost-effective and impactful ways to educate and motivate voters on issues important to the independent grocery industry. Additionally, the NGA Political Action Center helps NGA engage independent grocers through grassroots involvement, which is the key to expanding influence and support on a particular issue in Washington, D.C., according to NGA.
