_DSA Advocacy Center

Welcome to the Direct Selling Advocacy Center!

Thank you for visiting DSA’s Direct Selling Advocacy Center. Below, you will find two different ways for you to get involved with DSA’s advocacy efforts:

  • Click on the “Actions” Advocacy Campaign box to submit a pre-formed letter to your Member of Congress, urging them to co-sponsor H.R. 3409, the Anti-Pyramid Promotional Scheme Act of 2017, bipartisan consumer protection legislation.
  • Click on the “Find Officials” box to identify your federal and state officials, whom you can contact regarding other direct selling-related questions and concerns.

 

The millions of Americans that become involved in direct selling are the public face of the retail channel. DSA and its member companies work with policymakers in the federal, state and local levels to establish an appreciation of their contributions and to ensure that direct sellers and their customers are protected from bad actors – pyramid schemes and companies that exaggerate income, lifestyle, and product claims.

DSA’s policy priorities seek to:

  • Preserve the legal and tax status of independent direct sellers so they can pursue meaningful, independent work.
  • Help stakeholders differentiate between legitimate direct selling companies and illegal pyramid schemes to protect consumers
