Our Story

Invested Interests and Sudan Divestment

In 2003 the Sudanese government armed Janjaweed began mass slaughtering and raping Darfuri men, women, and children in Western Sudan. This was known as the Darfur Genocide.

To take a stand against these atrocities, the Sudan Divestment Task Force led universities, endowments and other institutional investors to divest from companies supporting the regime.

Invested Interests worked with the Sudan Divestment Task Force to make their divestment list available through online tools and portfolios that helped individuals investors avoid the targeted corporations. Divesting in specific companies, like Schlumberger and PetroChina, has had a significant impact in the region. And while human rights in Sudan remains a pressing issue, progress has been made since 2008.
