Through its mutual funds, DePaul University invests in corporations that manufacture weapons and provide surveillance technology to the Israeli government, army, and prison services. Companies like Hewlett-Packard, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Caterpillar profit from Israel’s violation of the human rights of Palestinians and minorities within Israel. They violate people’s rights to life, movement, healthcare, education, and freedom.
Do you think that DePaul should follow socially responsible investment practices and divest its funds from companies that profit from Israel’s discriminatory practices and human rights violations?
