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.

progressives of all stripes together and try out new ideas in this

place to find the great people, organizations and community you're looking
for while putting the SOCIAL back in social justice.

orientations, levels of activism and professions. We hope you see someone
like yourself and meet someone you otherwise wouldn't have.
