Fight genocide

Divestment is one of the key tactics that was successfully used to end apartheid in South Africa and it can help end the violence in Darfur, too.

Join me in fighting the genocide by urging Fidelity and other investment institutions to divest their holdings from companies that help fund the genocide. Click the banner above to sign the Divest for Darfur petition now and help cut off financial support for the government-sponsored violence. You can make a difference.

Diplomacy is crucial, but economic pressure may prove an even more powerful way to force Sudan to cooperate with international efforts to end the genocide. Sudan has been very responsive to economic pressure in the past so we have reason to hope that they will pay heed to the divestment efforts.

The Save Darfur Coalition is an alliance of over 180 faith-based, advocacy and humanitarian organizations whose mission is to raise public awareness about the ongoing genocide in Darfur and to mobilize a unified response to the atrocities that threaten the lives of more than two million people in the Darfur region.
