Subject: Demand TIAA-CREF take its shareholders seriously on Feb 7 in NYC
Join us as we demand that TIAA-CREF address the concerns of shareholders who have submitted a resolution calling on CREF to divest from companies profiting from the occupation of Palestine.
Where: TIAA-CREF headquarters, 730 Third Ave (at 45th St.), NYC
When: Thursday February 7, 2013, 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM
What: Demand that TIAA-CREF address the concerns of shareholders who have submitted a resolution calling on CREF to divest from Veolia and other companies profiting from the occupation of Palestine. Allow the resolution to go forward and be on the ballot.
Why: This year`s resolution calling for divestment is the next step in the We Divest campaign. Over 100 CREF shareholders have filed a resolution calling on the pension giant to divest from companies profiting from the Israeli occupation and to end their complicity in the violation of Palestinian human rights.
Join Omar Barghouti, of the BDS National Committee, and other activists, academics, and cultural workers to show your support for this campaign at TIAA-CREF`s national headquarters on the eve of the deadline for filing resolutions.
If you are a CREF shareholder and would like to join in filing the resolution, click here.
Signs and hot cocoa will be provided. Dress warmly!
