The We Divest campaign is a coalition of organizations demanding that financial services giant, TIAA-CREF, divests from all companies that profit from the Israeli Occupation.
The National Coordinating Committee (CC) is made up of six organizations leading the campaign: Jewish Voice for Peace, the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, Adalah-NY, The US Palestinian Community Network, Grassroots International, the American Friends Service Committee.
The CC meets every two weeks via conference call and twice a year in person. Each organization has equal decision-making power regardless of their size, and we make decisions by consensus.
The petition began with 280 signatures and is currently signed by over 24,000 people.
We are TIAA-CREF investors from universities, non-proﬁts, public schools, hospitals, and the arts who do not want to fund our retirements with the proﬁts from Palestinian suffering and death.
We are university students who want to stand up against injustice.
We are local activists who want to educate our communities about the companies making money off the occupation.
We are Israelis and Palestinians struggling for a just peace.
We are Jews, Muslims, Christians, and other people of conscience, who uphold our deepest values and proudest traditions by standing in solidarity with Palestinians and Israelis who are engaged in nonviolent resistance to the occupation in the form of Boycotts, Divestment, and Sanctions.
The Coordinating Committee invites you to join us in this historic campaign.
