Do not do it.
I stand among a throng of faith-based investors opposed to your proposed changes to SEC Rule 14a-8 which governs the filing of shareholder resolutions.
The rights of shareholders to apply pressure on behalf of justice and responsibility deserve to be / must be preserved. I strongly oppose any effort to curtail this important component of shareholder democracy.
I urge you to use the power of your office to maintain this important right with all vigor.
Today there are many good people when the world needs saints. (Carlo Caretto)
May God raise up prophets of justice and of peace, of compassion and of forgiveness, and may all peoples heed them while pursuing as individuals and as families, as nations and as religions, the sisterhood and brotherhood of us all.
Your brother with love,
