As You Sow is one of the nation’s leading practitioners of shareholder advocacy as a strategy for getting companies to take greater responsibility for their social and environmental impacts – using the power of ownership to promote positive change.
We engage in dialogue with selected companies, file shareholder resolutions, mobilize investor coalitions, and conduct unique shareholder solicitation initiatives to raise awareness and promote more responsible corporate behavior.
"To change big companies is like hitting your head against a brick wall. As You Sow keeps pressure on for the long term— their tenacity has turned companies around."
Timothy Smith, Former President, U.S. Social Investment Forum
