The Trustees of pension giant TIAA need to know about the serious human rights and climate problems and risks connected to TIAA’s investments in farmland. Send them a message now.
Why the Board of Trustees?
We have been concerned about TIAA’s investments in farmland for many years – both here in the U.S and in countries like Brazil, where TIAA has bought farmland from people accused of stealing land and where farmland investment is driving widespread deforestation. We and our partners have met with officials from TIAA multiple times, but they haven’t been willing to take actions that we felt were suitable to the problems being caused by their investments.
On July 17, 2019, TIAA is holding a special shareholder meeting in New York to elect the Board of Trustees, and we will be there to raise our concerns.
