I have come to realize over time that I am responsible for how the activity of companies in which I invest affect the commmunities where they do business. The realization of the link between minerals in areas of the Congo and the financing of armed groups that attack people there will continue to become widely known. Therefore, it is important that you act now to implement Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Act. If a company is to label a product DRC conflict free, require that they suppport their claim, so that I have a choice. This goes for all companies and all minerals. Thank you for continuing to respond to this issue. No product is worth the destruction of lives and communities.
