The practice of marshaling a minority of stakeholders in a company to advance a political cause is often referred to as "shareholder activism," and the tactic has proven effective in the 21st century
The results can be seen in major American companies publicly backing liberal positions on major culture war issues, from the "racism" of the American flag, to transgender bathrooms, and pro-life legislation.
"Corporate American is becoming the new college campus," he told the Washington Free Beacon. "They’re in a bubble—they don’t hear other perspectives."
Danhof cited progressive engagement regarding Georgia's heartbeat bill earlier this year as an example of how liberals successfully engage the public with their political outrage.
Danhof also raises awareness of the role of proxy services like the Institutional Shareholder Services in influencing corporations to shift leftwards.
Together, he says, with the liberal shareholder activists, they make up a highly effective progressive advocacy machine that has become increasingly powerful and partisan in recent years.
"ISS did once care about governance," he said. "Now they care about the social justice warrior agenda … they believe in AOC's socialist economic view."

ISS did not return request for comment.
To Danhof, the key for a united conservative front to counter this corporate bias is mimicking the successful leftwing system of action.

"If the left can do it, then so can conservatives," he said.
