Subject: LO Req. Tues. July 19 Adalah NY demo at TIAA-CREF

If you can legal observe for this event, please contact the Chapter office: (212) 679-6018

Who: Adalah-NY and others

What: Protest shareholders meeting

When: Tuesday, July 19, 4:30 – 6 PM

Where: TIAA-CREF headquarters 730 Third Ave (at 45th St)

Contact person: Patrick Connors

Contact number: (212) 380-6571

Why: July 19th is the day of TIAA-CREF’s annual shareholders’ meeting, held this year in Charlotte, NC. As part of a national campaign, human rights activists in cities across the US will protest to ask retirement-fund giant TIAA-CREF to divest from the Israeli occupation. TIAA-CREF’s motto is “For the Greater Good,” but this year, TIAA-CREF leadership refused to allow a shareholder resolution for divestment from Israeli occupation to be placed on the ballot at the annual shareholder meeting. Tell TIAA-CREF they can’t escape the call for divestment!

Organized by Adalah-NY: The NY Campaign for the Boycott of Israel; CODEPINK-NYC; Jewish Voice for Peace – NYC; Jewish Voice for Peace – Westchester; Brooklyn For Peace; WESPAC Foundation; Women in Black, Union Square (list in formation)
