Procter & Gamble shareholders shot down a proposal this week to join the surge of corporate backlash against religious freedom and restroom laws.
NorthStar Asset Management, which owns at least $2,000 worth of P&G stock, proposed at an investor meeting the company should join Apple, PayPal, Disney, and others in the political fight against religious freedom laws in Mississippi and Tennessee and should take a stand against North Carolina’s transgender restroom policy. The consumer goods giant overtly rejected the idea, with 94 percent of shareholders voting against it.
