Shareholder seeks reparations for slave-built railroad

A new category for ESG — the first-ever shareholder proposal calling for reparations from a company with a history of slave labor going back to the 19th century.

In the first proposal of its kind, a shareholder is requesting a report from railroad company CSX on how it would go about paying reparations for the railways it operates on that were built with slave labour prior to abolition.

A New York county comptroller, March Gallagher, filed a shareholder proposal at rail transport company CSX for reparations.
