Our shares. Our votes. Our future.

As real human investors, our wellbeing depends on far more than quarterly profits.

We the Shareholders tackles the fundamental challenges of shareholder disenfranchisement, involuntary dissociation, and unfettered wealth-inequality that stand in the way of human investors' ability to engage, influence, and change corporate behavior—challenges that undermine American democracy itself.

Join us in restoring corporate democracy and making capitalism sustainable.
