Tell TIAA-CREF to stop investing in the Separation Wall
Ask one of the largest financial services companies in the United States to divest from Elbit Systems Ltd., the company that profits by building the Separation Wall – the structure that separates Palestinian farmers from their land and water resources.
TIAA-CREF is particularly interested in hearing from people like you: the participants (or clients) who expect the corporation to live up to its motto: Financial Services for the Greater Good.
Don't have TIAA-CREF? Take part by adding your name to our petition asking TIAA-CREF to divest today.
While the specific companies held change over time, TIAA-CREF’s investment criteria do not screen out such investments, which are incompatible with our values and with corporate social responsibility.
Out of our commitment to equality, freedom, and international law, we therefore urgently request that:
• TIAA-CREF divest from companies like Elbit that:
1) Directly profit from or contribute to the Israeli occupation of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.
2) Provide products or services that contribute to the construction and maintenance of Israeli settlements and/or the Separation Wall, both of which are illegal under international law.
3) Provide products or services that contribute to or enable violent acts that target civilians.
• TIAA-CREF establish investment criteria to exclude any such companies in the future.
For almost 100 years, TIAA-CREF has striven to provide financial services for the greater good, helping those in the academic, medical, cultural, and research fields to plan for and live in retirement. Please help all TIAA-CREF participants invest the fruit of their labor and enjoy their retirement in good conscience.
