  1. Social responsibility on one hand, financial hypocrisy on the other. I am ashamed of to be apart of such community .

  2. Once again Earlham students have proven to be the conscience of the community. Congratulations. I retired ten years ago as Director of Peace and Global Studies, and it’s great to see that the best of Earlham has not changed.
    Please keep pushing this important issue. Let me know if I can be of help in any way. I am making my thirty-sixth visit to Palestine this June, leading a group of twenty-five persons.

  3. Los fodos estadounidenses que se envian a Israel deben cesar y ser usados en crear empleos en Estados Unidos para reducir la pobresa, la perdida de hogares ,escuelas salud ,la tristrsa ,la depresió ,etc del pueblo estadounidense.

  4. Thanks to each and everyone of you that partcipated in this divestment. The Palestinan people are ver thankfull

  5. I am happy to see this leadership coming from the Earlham community.

    A proposal (concerning TIAA-CREF’s investment in selected companies profiting from the oppression of Palestinians) came to our Blue River Quarterly Meeting from St. Louis Monthly Meeting, at our spring 2011 session (minute available soon.) It specifically called on AFSC to give leadership in calling for divestment, since TIAA-CREF runs their pension program.

    The Quarter united with that, and is forwarding it to the annual sessions of Illinois Yearly Meeting. As presiding officer of that body, I hesitate to say more, but will be glad to forward any action that comes from our meeting in mid-June.

    1. The Illinois Yearly Meeting of Religious Society of Friends united with the concern brought both by St. Louis Monthly Meeting and Blue River Quarterly Meeting, to urge American Friends Service Committee to seek for the TIAA-CREF pension funds to divest from 5 corporations whose business and/or products oppose Palestinians.

      Soon thereafter we learned of the favorable action from AFSC, which you can read about here:

  6. Please Mr Obama,make a serious effort that will very soon bring an end to this everlas-
    lasting occupation,illegal settlements etc. etc.etc.

    Best wishes,

    Jan Asselbergs.

  7. Congratulations on taking a step for peace with justice. What you have done will make a difference for good in the world.

  8. Bravo, Earlham students and alumni. Friends around the U.S. will be inspired by your action and that of AFSC. Friends support freedom and an end to the suffering of Palestinians and Israelis, too, who will so benefit from ending their repression of their neighbors.
