The Unitarian Universalist Association, along with other organizations, holds the requisite minimum number of shares ($2,000 worth) of stock in a company in order to file a resolution. The resolutions are on a myriad of topics including sexual orientation/gender identity non-discrimination, political spending disclosure and, climate change to name a few.
In order for a resolution to get on the proxy there must be someone at the shareholder meeting to present it. Hopefully, here’s where you come in. The UUA or other organization prepares a statement for you to read at the meeting. You attend the meeting and read the statement, that’s it, nothing more. You are not responsible for engaging the company or answering questions.
If you would like to present shareholder resolutions in your area or would like to protest outside of a meeting where the UUA will be presenting a shareholder resolution, please fill out this form.
