Violence Prevention and Shareholder Advocacy

Encouraging a culture of care; addressing our culture of consumerism.  (Laudato Si 231, 184)

I lead two bodies of work that influence care for our planet and communities: violence prevention and shareholder advocacy. What I do in violence prevention connects directly to this work. Our community-based violence prevention efforts rely on access to safe and beautiful spaces, clean water, healthy and nutritious food. Access to those things bolsters health, builds resilience and mitigates violence. In addition, shareholder advocacy gives me an ideal opportunity to engage and change corporate behaviors that can impact the environment and climate. As a large corporate investor, CommonSpirit can change policies, procedures and practices, along with the hearts and minds of corporations and their colleagues.
