FGA applauds 19 Attorneys General for taking stance against Blackrock’s far-left corporate governance

This month, 19 state attorneys general wrote a letter to BlackRock CEO Larry Fink challenging the company’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investment criteria. BlackRock is an asset management firm with around $10 trillion in assets under management and is a global leader in advancing ‘woke’ ESG propaganda.

The Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) applauds these state leaders for taking a bold stance against radical leftist corporate governance and for protecting economic freedom in their respective states.

“Large financial institutions, like BlackRock, have relied on energy and social governance factors for asset investment rather than solely focusing on financial return—discriminating against retirees and businesses,” said Eric Bledsoe, Senior Fellow at FGA. “These corporate elites are picking winners and losers, driving inflation, and punishing those who disagree with their radical climate agenda. We applaud these state attorneys general for challenging BlackRock and in doing so, taking a public stance against such ‘woke’ agents.”
