Our goal at 2ndVote is to keep you informed on causes that corporations are supporting with your money, in order to ensure that they are held accountable for their actions. 

From the Analyst's Desk 

Here are some of the key findings and data points of interest discovered in our recent research:

Ace Hardware (3.61) – Ace Hardware remains neutral or minimally active on almost all key issues; with 2nd Amendment and Civil-Safe society being where they earned some minor points. However, their standout issue is Life, for which they granted a massive donation of over $14 million dollars to the Children’s Miracle Network, which specializes in child critical illness care including infants in the NICU.

American Airlines Group, Inc. (2.29) – American Airlines is generally evenly split between issues with scorable data and issues that they remain neutral on. However, scorable data available on the issue of Basic Freedoms indicates a strong commitment to HRC values, LGBTQ support, and DEI policy adherence.

Bloomin’ Brands, Inc. (2.24) – Bloomin’ Brands, which owns restaurant chains like Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Bonefish Grill, Flemming’s, and Outback Steakhouse, scores relatively neutral on most issues; the exceptions being slight positive points on Environment for having stewardship policies, and a poor score on Basic Freedoms for their high score on the HRC CEI. However, with so little scoreable data found, Bloomin’ Brands is a great example of a company worth lobbying for change in their policies to be more neutral, or closer to conservative.
