” Peter Lewis, former chairman of Progressives, died in 2013. Throughout his life, he generously donated from his personal wealth to a variety of organizations and causes, ranging from politics to art and education. His donations were largely covered by the media and the ACLU was one of a number of organizations that Peter personally supported.
Progressive's 40,000+ employees support a wide range of political, social and religious affiliations. Peter's philanthropic activities, like those of other progressive employees, past or present, were his own and did not reflect Progressive's views or beliefs.
As I said, we have encountered different versions of this chain letter for several years and have discovered that without exception they are full of inaccuracies, misrepresentations and half-truths. The details of this letter can be easily explored through reputable sources on and offline. I'm sure you'll come to the same conclusion. For example, Progressive has no, and has never had, any association with George Soros. Progressive has also never given any financial support to any of the organizations mentioned in this chain letter.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to address your concerns and thank you for choosing to represent Progressive in your agency.
