Corporate Support for Employee Voting - 2021

The 2022 US Midterm election onTuesday, November 8 will be here before we know it. During that election, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 34 of the 100 seats in the Senate will be on ballots across the country. There will also be 39 state and territorial gubernatorial elections held. This is of course in addition to other state and local elections. The impact of these elections will be critical. Recent events in American history underscore the need for a highly engaged electorate and fair voting systems to support a well-functioning democracy and economy. Trillium has been engaged in the fight for greater voter access by encouraging companies to make greater civic engagement possible through paid time off to vote.

Trillium’s findings in this white paper give hope companies are moving in the right direction, providing greater avenues for voter access for employees, but there is much work to be done.

A Multi-Decade Engagement: The Changing of the Washington NFL Team Name and Logo

On July 13, 2020, the Washington football team announced it was retiring its name, mascot and logo. The change is a direct result from engagement with sponsors and shareholders as well as decades of Native-led advocacy.

Trillium and fellow Investors & Indigenous Peoples Working Group (IIPWG) members had been collaborating on this issue for years. They collectively engaged with sponsors of the Washington D.C. NFL Football team to drive this change on June 14, 2020. In late June 2020, steered by IIPWG, these engagements culminated in letters to FedEx, Nike, and Pepsi from over 80 investors representing over $620 billion in assets asking the companies to cease their relationships with the team if it continued to use its current name and logo – ultimately driving the decision to change the name.
