I am an active member of Interfaith Center for Corporate Responsibility. I support the letter sent from ICCR on November 6, 2018. We are NOT an 'activist' shareholder organization; in fact, we consider filing resolutions as the last step in engagement with a Company, only when we do not hear from a Company or we see no progress in their ESG practice. Most Companies appreciate our engagement and even our Resolutions because they improve their stakeholder practices in general, avoiding longer-term risks such as financial, environmental, and social negative consequences. The current ownership threshold of $2,000 allows smaller investors like us to participate in the shareholder process. Thank you for your consideration.
