Shareholder and consumer pressure for social justice
Share Now on:
This week, the Service Employees International Union and nonprofit Majority Action called on managers of pension and hedge funds to press for social justice during corporate annual meetings. Plus, a large group of religious leaders calls for a boycott of Home Depot and says the company isn't doing enough to oppose Georgia's new law that makes it harder to vote. And, progress for restaurants that are able to pay rent again, but the data also shows challenges for minority-owned businesses.
