Investors Against Genocide is a citizen-led initiative, dedicated to convincing mutual funds and other investment firms to make an ongoing commitment to genocide-free investing.
Investors Against Genocide works with individuals, financial firms, pension and endowment managers and government officials to encourage investment firms to change their investing strategy to avoid investments in companies that substantially contribute to genocide or crimes against humanity.
Investors Against Genocide is a project of the Massachusetts Coalition to Save Darfur Inc., a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, incorporated in the state of Massachusetts.
Since the government-sponsored genocide in Sudan continues, we advocate for investment firms to avoid or divest holdings of PetroChina/CNPC and China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation/Sinopec, oil companies that are large business partners with the government of Sudan. These same companies also support Burma, Syria and Iran.
Looking forward, we advocate for investment firms to make an ongoing commitment to genocide-free investing policies that would apply to future genocides or crimes against humanity.
Our goal is to make the U.S. financial investment industry more responsive to the American public’s interest in not having their savings connected to the most egregious violations of human rights.
