HSUS Becomes Shareholder in Financial Institutions

The animal-advocacy organization will be able to propose policy changes at shareholder meetings.


Using an established tactic for advocacy, the Humane Society of the United States recently entered a world that might seem somewhat unrelated to its purpose: the shareholder meetings of JP Morgan Chase, BlackRock, Jennison Associates, and Ameriprise Financial. What these financial institutions have in common is that they are investors in Tyson Foods and Seaboard Foods, two companies that have thus far refused to abandon the use of gestation crates for pigs in their supply chains. In light of the immense movement in major food corporations away from the cruel crates, HSUS will make the case that the financial sector is making poor investment choices by continuing relationships with Tyson and Seaboard.
