Hope's Divestment Campaign sign now

We, the undersigned students, faculty, and employees of Hope College, petition that Hope actively oppose and resist the ongoing genocide in Sudan. We call on Hope College to divest from, and not to invest additional funds in, either directly or indirectly, certain companies that do business in Sudan in response to the genocide that Khartoum continues to wage in Darfur, Sudan. This call for divestment is instated because the Sudanese government depends heavily on revenue generated by businesses operating in Sudan to finance its campaign of genocide. This revenue spurs economic growth that benefits the government and contributes to Khartoums ability to purchase weapons which allows the continuation of the genocide in Darfur, Sudan.

Through divestment and the cessation of investment, a moral obligation will be upheld from Hope College, but more importantly, divestment will put economic pressure on the government of Sudan to change the situation, namely the genocide in Darfur. Furthermore, we urge President Bultman to publicly state that Hope will not invest in any corporation that conducts business with the Sudanese government, either directly or indirectly, for as long as Sudan is in violation of international norms of human rights.
