FEP proposals ready to go

The conservative movement's only full-service shareholder activism and education program has a busy day planned.

Representatives of the Free Enterprise Project (FEP) at the National Center for Public Policy Research are presenting proposals today at four shareholder meetings.

"At CVS, we've got a proposal that would require the board members at CVS to only be on the CVS board, because what we've got is this interlocking group of CEOs and executives who fly themselves to Davos every year to decide how the rest of us need to live our lives," Free Enterprise Project spokesman Scott Shepard begins.

"At Home Depot, we've got a proposal calling on [shareholders] to rescind a proposal that they passed last year that requires Home Depot to undertake racial equity audits," he continues.

FEP representatives are also addressing executives with the Charles Schwab Corporation as well as Yum! Brands.

"We asked Charles Schwab to fill out and amplify its score on a viewpoint and diversity index the same way that it touts its corporate equality index," Shepard relays, noting that the latter is from the Human Rights Campaign, the LGBTQ+ advocacy group that once campaigned for homosexual marriage but is now pushing for the repeal of religious liberties and favoring the end of women's sports.

"Yum! Brands got involved in the same gamesmanship, pushing for the hard-Left social policies and discriminating in the workplace about what employees can say and what they need to think," the FEP spokesman adds.

While some people choose not to invest in companies that do Left-leaning things, the National Center for Public Policy Research has shares in many of them so they may attend shareholder meetings, raise awareness about controversial business practices, and try to bring companies back to center.
