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. Since the government-sponsored genocide in Sudan continues, we advocate for investment firms to avoid or divest holdings of the four foreign oil companies that are the largest business partners with the government of Sudan. These four companies are PetroChina/CNPC, China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation/Sinopec, ONGC and Petronas. 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.

Investors Against Genocide is a project of the Massachusetts Coalition to Save Darfur Inc., a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

Stop Investing in Companies Tied to Genocide

Few of us want our personal savings connected to genocide. Even so, investment firms like BlackRock, Fidelity, Franklin Templeton, JPMorgan Chase, and Vanguard invest their customers’ money in companies that help fund the ongoing genocide in Sudan. PetroChina and Sinopec, for example, not only support the government of Sudan, but also Syria, Burma and Iran. Help us send a strong message to draw the line at genocide. You don’t have to be an investor to object, since these investment firms want your business now or in the future. Sign the petition and send a message to these investment firms that you want them to avoid investing in companies that help to fund genocide.

Stop Investing in Companies Tied to Genocide

Many financial institutions invest in a handful of foreign oil companies, such as PetroChina and Sinopec, that help fund the government of Sudan’s deadly campaign of violence against millions of its citizens. BlackRock, Fidelity, Franklin Templeton, JPMorgan Chase and Vanguard are large investors in both PetroChina and Sinopec. Help us send a strong message to draw the line at genocide. You don’t have to be an investor to object. Financial companies want your business now or in the future, so your voice will matter. Sign the petition and send a message to these financial institutions: “I object to financial institutions investing in companies that help to fund genocide.”
