As You Sow's annual Proxy Preview 2019 is launching next month. They tout themselves as providing the most comprehensive data on hundreds of shareholder resolutions — including environmental, corporate political spending, human rights, diversity, sustainable governance issues, and much more. Over 30 guest authors provide analysis and expert insight to help you navigate the issues and successfully vote your shares.

The webinar that highlights the findings is on March 13th and the report is usually released the same day.
