Statement re: Friends Fiduciary Corp - 2013

Ann Arbor Friends welcome the decision by Friends Fiduciary Corporation (FFC) in 2012 to drop its holdings in Caterpillar Corp, Hewlett Packard, and Veolia Environment, companies listed on the investment screen developed by AFSC to avoid support for products and services used in violence against civilians in Israel and Palestine.  We invite LEYM Friends to join us in expressing thanks to FFC for this compassionate action.                                 Nancy Taylor, AAFM
