Policy #4A

Investments related to Sudan's genocidal activities

(Adopted by the Council 7/20/12)

 

 

RESOLVED: that the Minnesota State Bar Association take immediate and appropriate action to ensure that no association funds are invested in a targeted list of companies whose operations are deemed to be complicit with the Government of Sudan's genocidal activities in Darfur, Sudan. The list of targeted companies is available from the Sudan Divestment Task Force operated by the Genocide Intervention Network. The MSBA shall be prohibited from the purchase of such securities in the future and shall monitor the Divestment Task Force list semi-annually for any updates. Any current investment that is later connected to a scrutinized company shall be sold at the earliest opportunity.
