Bennett Freeman, senior vice president of social research and policy at Calvert Group, testified before the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs this week on the firm’s support of divestment of holdings of companies that support the Sudanese government, which has been conducting genocide over the past two years.
