Tell the SEC to stand up for human rights by issuing strong conflict minerals regulations.
The Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, is squandering a historic opportunity to help end the deadliest conflict since World War II.
After stalling for over a year, SEC Commissioners intend to release weak conflict minerals regulations. They are planning to let corporations off the hook for up to three more years by delaying the law’s implementation. This is exactly what industry lobbyists asked for.
Call 202-551-2700 and leave a message like the one below:
"Hi, my name is ______. I’m calling because the people of eastern Congo matter to me, and I understand you are caving to industry pressure. The SEC cannot delay on conflict minerals regulations any longer. A delay means stalled progress toward a minerals trade that benefits rather than destroys communities. The rules must include strong reporting requirements and due diligence standards. Thank you."
