for movement building.

Socially Responsible Investing
How do we manage our finances to best sustain ourselves and support our 
vision of a more just economy? This is a chance to learn investment basics 
and discuss financial management with a local progressive activist and 
finance professional. No prior knowledge expected: we'll start with 
fundamentals and definitions. Participants should come away with a more 
intuitive sense of how to use investments, and ideas about how to research 
and choose between different financial tools without checking your politics 
at the door.

Joby Gelbspan is a lifelong progressive activist who has dedicated her 
career to "translating finance for activists." She holds a Master's in 
Accounting and an MBA, with financial and management experience ranging 
from non-profit organizations to the investment management industry. She 
has served on several nonprofit Boards and as CFO and Financial Consultant 
for grassroots, progressive organizations. She currently works for 
Corporate Accountability International, campaigning to change the World 
Bank's abusive practices.

Since 2006, we've been building this great sandbox where we can bring 
progressives of all stripes together and try out new ideas in this 
"Movement Moment". Spaces like this are crucial as we start to reframe and 
build new visions for our movement(s).

With over 2000 members and almost 6 years of creating a diverse cross-issue 
community in Boston (130+ events!), Socializing for Justice is the best 
place to find the great people, organizations and community you're looking 
for while putting the SOCIAL back in social justice.

YES, WE MEAN YOU. We've got members of all ages, races, genders, sexual 
orientations, levels of activism and professions. We hope you see someone 
like yourself and meet someone you otherwise wouldn't have.
