Link to the Petition: ipetitions.com/petition/usfdivest
Research of the 2013 endowment report has revealed that USF invests in companies affiliated with Human Rights violations in Palestine.This petition is calling on the Board of Trustees of USF Foundation to "divest" funds from these corporations and replace them with ethical alternatives that respect human rights and international law.
We ask the Board of Trustees of the USF Foundation:
1. To create a committee consisting of representatives from staff, faculty and students that will publish quarterly reports of its investments and investment policy to create transparency with the goal of educating the university community on how its endowment is invested.
2. To create a policy that ensures our endowment is invested in a socially just manner, with regard to human rights and environmental welfare.
3. To declare divestment from corporations directly complicit in human rights violations against the Palestinian people.
