This week, Forbes, The Atlantic, and Reuters featured stories about Trinity Wall Street. Trinity, as a Wal-Mart shareholder, is seeking to introduce a proposal asking Wal-Mart’s Board of Directors to oversee the development of a policy for the sale of products that are 1) especially dangerous to the public, 2) pose a substantial risk to Wal-Mart’s reputation, and 3) would reasonably be considered offensive to the community and family values that Wal-Mart seeks to associate with its brand, such as guns equipped with high-capacity magazines.
On Monday, Forbes published an article about the proposal and subsequent court cases here. The Atlantic wrote about Trinity’s shareholder activism as well as the efforts of other churches at gun-control, which you can read here. Reuters also published a column on the proposal here.
