Call on investors: stand up for human rights in Darfur

Press some of the most powerful companies in the world to use their influence to help end the human rights catastrophe in Darfur. To ensure the speedy and full deployment of the UN-African Union peacekeeping force (UNAMID) in Darfur, Khartoum must hear from key economic interests, including the oil companies that they depend on for revenue. To convince these oil companies to act, we must enlist their investors as our allies. In the past year we have already had success working with several top U.S. investment firms, including Morgan Stanley and T. Rowe Price, who have committed to raising concerns about Darfur with oil companies in which they are invested. But our work is far from over. By adding your voice, we can convince even more investment companies to take a similar stand. Press investors in Sudanís oil industry to follow the lead of companies like Morgan Stanley and T. Rowe Price to take a stand for the people of Darfur.
