Parkland Student Calls for Boycott of Financial Firm as Pelosi Hangs Out With Firm’s Ex-Director

Parkland survivor David Hogg, who has been active in fighting for gun control after the tragedy at his high school, called for a boycott of two companies on Tuesday afternoon, BlackRock and Vanguard.

Citing the two companies’ connections to gun manufacturers, Hogg encouraged his followers to pull their support for the financial firms.

“@blackrock and @Vanguard_Group are two of the biggest investors in gun manufacturers; if you use them, feel free to let them know,” he wrote on Twitter. A second tweet called for a boycott:

That may cause headaches for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who is scheduled to hang out with a former executive of BlackRock Tuesday evening. Pelosi will reportedly attend a book unveiling in Washington, D.C. where Morris Pearl, the former BlackRock executive, will debut his new book attacking the GOP tax bill.

Pearl served as a BlackRock executive from 2005 to 2014, according to his LinkedIn page. During that time, BlackRock had almost $350 million invested in gun manufacturers.

Pelosi joined Hogg’s “March for Our Lives” last month.
