I am writing to comment on the SEC's proposal that would cripple investors’ ability to seek policy changes from US public companies and undermine investors’ First Amendment rights.  

I am a citizen and investor who cares about what policies the companies I invest in are taking and I need transparency. 

The 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 corporations have realized positive change through and have benefited from the SEC’s existing shareholder proposal process. 

I urge you to reject the pending proposal for the sake of democracy.
