Shareholders Urge CEOs Advising Trump to Reject Travel Ban
Tri-CRI members joined faith-based investors and shareholder advocates in sending a letter to the 19 current and former CEOs compromising President Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum. These business leaders will be meeting with President Trump this Friday to provide input on the implementation of the administration’s economic agenda. The letter urges the business leaders participating in the Forum to speak out in strong opposition to the Executive Order restricting entry into the U.S. for refugees, immigrants, and documented residents from selected countries. The letter ultimately calls on members of the Strategic and Policy Forum to address the following with President Trump and his advisors:
1) Speak out strongly against the President’s Executive Order restricting entry into the U.S. for refugees, immigrants, and documented residents from selected countries.
2) Recommend that the President and his Administration join with you and the global business community to ensure respect for the human rights of workers, regardless of their ethnicity, race, religion, nationality, immigration status, sexual orientation, or gender identity, at home and in global value chains.
3) Urge the U.S. government to work with other nations to align corporate policies and practices with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The following Tri-CRI members endorsed the letter: Franciscan Sisters of Allegany, Maryknoll Sisters, Mercy Investment Services, Sisters of Charity – Halifax, Sisters of Charity of New York, Sisters of St. Dominic of Amityville, and Sisters of St. Dominic of Blauvelt.
