Transparency and disclosure rules

Please support efforts to create and pass legislation that will increase transparency and disclosure by financial firms regarding investments in companies that substantially contribute to genocide or crimes against humanity.

Congressional hearing on investments tied to genocide

  • Read expert testimony from the hearing.

Sign-on statement

We support efforts to pass legislation that will increase transparency and disclosure by financial firms regarding investments in companies that substantially contribute to genocide or crimes against humanity. We hope legislation will empower the vast majority of Americans, who do not want their hard-earned savings connected to egregious human rights abuses, to make informed decisions and to avoid such connections should they choose to do so.

Legislation

  • Sign the petition asking your Congressional representative to do what he/she can to support genocide-free investing.  Signing is quick and easy and sends an important message of support.
  • Contact Investors Against Genocide for the current status of the legislation and how to co-sponsor.
