TIAA-CREF Removes Coke from Social Choice Account

Today, pension giant TIAA-CREF announced that it has removed The Coca-Cola Company from its CREF Social Choice Account.  The announcement comes after a year-long campaign by CCFC that included demonstrations at TIAA-CREF's offices, a public letter signed by leading advocates for children, and calls and emails from CCFC members.

Thanks to all of you who took the time to write or call TIAA-CREF.  And special thanks to CCFC member Fern Gale Estrow, who spoke out at last year's TIAA-CREF annual meeting.
