For this and other related reading and news, please see *here*. When you hear about people having large stock portfolios, day-trading, and being millionaires, what gender and race comes to mind? In my mind, and in my experience with few exceptions, the gender is man and the race is white. That is not a lucky break for white men, at all. It's entirely a function of the sexist and racist politics of corporate capitalism, "oppressive-and-lethal-not-free" trade, and globalisation.
Investors Against Genocide
Draw the line at investing in genocide
|Dear friends of IAG,|
We are proud to let you know that our colleagues at the Unitarian Universalist Association announced on Friday that they will be moving their $178 million in retirement funds from Fidelity to TIAA-CREF as part of their commitment to genocide-free investing. This important move is a leading example of the fact that Americans do not want their savings tied to genocide and that the market now provides clear mainstream choice for individuals and organizations that wish to be genocide-free.
All of the details and news related to this announcement, including the UUA press release and a news article from Reuters are posted at this link: investorsagainstgenocide
We are very excited about this important step forward for genocide-free investing and thank you for your ongoing support.
If you know of other groups that are moving, or have moved, their money to genocide-free options, please let us know.
