What: Street protest for divestment from Israel's occupation, with creative chants and songs
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!
