I wanted to make sure you saw the latest from Everytown for Gun Safety on the steps American companies are taking after Parkland to promote public safety:
“It’s a very good barometer of where the public stands,” John Feinblatt, the president of Everytown for Gun Safety, told the New York Times on Wednesday. “Corporations tend to reflect their customers.”
The list of boardrooms taking action on this in recent weeks includes Citigroup, Bank of America, Amalgamated Bank, Walmart, Dick’s Sporting Goods and others. And with the list growing, Everytown has released new guidance, laying out six steps gun manufacturers can take – or that their shareholders can pressure them to adopt.
Everytown has also released guidelines for banks, credit card companies, and lenders weighing their options after Parkland, including proposed Codes of Conduct that these financial institutions can require gun industry clients to commit to.
For more on the decisions corporate leaders are making, and for more information about the guidance that gun safety experts are offering, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
