It's easy to feel like big corporations control the fate of the world. But the truth is, those companies are owned and controlled by shareholders -- regular people like us -- and shareholders can determine how companies help or hurt causes like human rights. Many human rights resolutions are up for vote this year. If you own shares in a company and care about human rights, it's important to make your voice heard and vote your shares when you can.
For example, shareholders pushing for transparency were able to get new rules from the SEC enacted this year that require companies to disclose their payments to foreign governments. These same foreign governments who are committing human rights atrocities against their own people. Because shareholders spoke up, companies can now be held accountable for doing business with governments that engage in these human rights violations.
You too can make a big difference for causes you care about. Vote your shares to support human rights on Moxy Vote.
