Is Your Retirement Pension Really Socially Responsible?


What Can We Do about TIAA-CREF’s “Israeli Occupation” Portfolio?

7 p.m.

Maze Branch Library     Meeting Room     845 Gunderson Ave.    Oak Park, Illinois

Are you a TIAA- CREF retirement client? Is someone that you know?
Because of its socially responsi­ble reputation, many people are dismayed that more than $2.3 billion of TIAA-CREF’s pension funds are invested in compa­nies that profit from the Israel/Palestine conflict.
More than 24,000 people have signed a national petition that asks TIAA-CREF to stop these investments. Taking such action is not new for TIAA-CREF, which divested from companies during apartheid-era South Africa and the conflict in Darfur.
Join Rabbi Alissa Wise - national Co-Chair of the Rabbinical Council of Jewish Voice for Peace - and Chicago Divests activists. 

We’ll discuss the companies in TIAA-CREF’s “Occupation Portfolio,” as well as recent successes and prospects for the TIAA-CREF divestment campaign. 
Learn what we are doing in the Chicago area to give TIAA-CREF the opportunity to live up to its motto: “Financial Services for the Greater Good.”

If you are in Chicago or affiliated with a Chicago institution, sign the Chicago Divests petition athttp://bit.ly/chicagodivests Outside of Chicago, sign the national petition at www.wedivest.org  

Event organized by the Committee for Peace and Justice in Israel and Palestine.  info@cjpip.org
