On October 10, 1999, The Boston Herald published an article about the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR). The ICCR, established in 1971, is a nationwide coalition of 275 religious groups who invest in companies and then use the shareholder resolution process to effect the investment practices they consider unethical. The organization has been involved with the divesting of holdings in South Africa to protest Apartheid and recently has been targeting the tobacco industry.
