Why I fight to end genocide

On December 9, 2021 (World Genocide Day), I led a delegation to present luxury jeweler Harry Winston with our petition asking them to stop sourcing #GenocideGems from Myanmar. About ten minutes later, they announced they would do just that. This is why I got into this kind of work. No Business With Genocide’s entire raison d’etre is to stop companies from profiting from and funding genocide or other mass atrocities.
