@SoJust ProfDev: Socially Responsible Investing
August 4, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10
Uncertain how to work towards a secure financial future while living out your values? Join Socializing for Justice for a ProfDev on Socially Responsible Investing on August 4, 6:00 – 8:30 PM.
How do we manage our savings to best sustain ourselves and support our vision of a more just economy? Whether you’re investing now, informing yourself for the future, or organizing a divestment or financial campaign, this is a chance to learn investment basics and discuss all those questions with a local progressive activist and finance professional. No prior knowledge expected: we’ll start with basic terms and concepts, and also cover political choices and investment strategies. Participants gain 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.
