Investors Against Genocide Investors Against Genocide Genocide-free investing shareholder proposals Through their mutual funds, millions of people are inadvertently investing in companies that are funding the Darfur genocide. Vanguard, Fidelity, American Funds, Franklin Templeton, Barclays and others are investors in problem companies such as PetroChina. Avoiding the small number of problem companies that are helping to fund the genocide in Darfur should not result in any significant effect on performance. To end this pattern of investment in genocide, concerned citizens have volunteered to submit the genocide-free investing shareholder proposal to over 100 funds, with many more to come! These proposals encourage mutual funds to stop investing in genocide. As more shareholders become aware of the opportunity to vote, the proposal for genocide-free investing will succeed.
