Hi Friend:

Wanted to let you know that the US Chamber, the Business Roundtable and NAM have ramped up efforts using misleading information to push through a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposal that would cripple investors’ ability to seek policy changes from US public companies and undermine investors’ First Amendment rights. 
We here at CPA are turning up the heat to stop it.

This past Friday, we submitted a 12-page formal comment  to the SEC opposing the rule changes, and we did so with data and fact, not misinformation and lies.

Our comment concluded that successful disclosure agreements CPA and its partners have achieved at such leading companies as Alphabet, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase and Boeing would have been blocked if the proposed rules had been in place. 

The bottom line is, as our comment states, corporations have realized positive change through and have benefited from the SEC’s existing shareholder proposal process.

We can't let the SEC undermine our democracy. I ask you to join us at CPA in this fight. Submit your own comment by the end of the day to the SEC via email to, making sure to include "File No: S7-23-19" in the subject line of your email.
