Secure Justice recently hosted and published a podcast discussing various strategies to provide greater protection for immigrants’ rights, covering law, policy and socially responsible investing, and they evaluated the Biden Administration’s approach to immigration enforcement.
The podcast features Jacinta Gonzalez with Mijente, Layla Razavi with Freedom For Immigrants, and Susan Ozawa Perez with Secure Justice and Senior Portfolio Manager at Impact Investors.
A notable takeaway point from Secure Justice’s post, is that “using some of the same shareholder activist strategies that we discussed in the podcast with Susan Ozawa Perez, Mijente’s campaign targeting Thomson-Reuters recently led to more than 70% of independent shareholders voting on a resolution that would require the company to analyze and report on potential human rights abuses caused by its business practices. Although the controlling interest was able to block the resolution from going forward, significant media attention and public outrage is causing Thomson-Reuters to reconsider doing business with ICE. Even a ‘loss’ can be a win, in the court of public opinion.”
