Trustees of TIAA-CREF's socially responsible investment products beware. You may soon find dozens of activists outside your home, protesting the company's practices and waving picket signs.
That's right, picket signs. In a rare collision between the business of old-school social protest and the business of offering investment products, a group lead by a Manchester College professor has resorted to staging protests at the homes of TIAA-CREF trustees. They are trying to persuade the company to change its approach to socially responsible investing, otherwise known as SRI.
