Domini Addresses the Congressional Human Rights Caucus on the Genocide in Darfur

Domini was pleased to have the opportunity to brief the Congressional Human Rights Caucus on what investors can do to implement policies addressing genocide and other crimes against humanity. We were the only financial services representative present at the briefing.

The briefing, held on September 10, 2008, was chaired by Representative Jim McGovern (D-MA) and also included an opening statement from Representative Michael Capuano (D-MA).

In his statement, Managing Director and General Counsel Adam Kanzer said, “Our shareholders are not unique in wishing to use their investments to build a world of environmental sustainability and human dignity. They are certainly not unique in refusing to profit from genocide.… We must tell corporate managers that they are not acting in our name when they actively support genocidal regimes.”

The panelists urged Congress to hold formal hearings on this topic during the next session.
