Brown University President Paxson and Board of Trustees: Divest from companies who profit from the Israeli occupation of Palestine

 

As alumi, and investors in a global economy, it is our responsibility to remove Brown's resources from the companies who facilitate systemic human rights violations in Palestine. Please sign below to encourage Brown to take action. 

We are proud that the Brown Advisory Committee on Corporate Responsibility in Investment Policies (ACCRIP) has 1) recognized systemic human rights violations in Palestine, and 2) asked the President and the Brown Community to discuss divesting from companies profiting from the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

To learn more about why the Brown Committee has made this recomendation, and other ways that Brown has divested from socially irresponsible companies, go to: http://mondoweiss.net/2012/11/brown-univ-committee-recommends-considering-divestment-from-companies-that-profit-from-israeli-occupation.html

When signing, please add your alumni year with your name.
