Event Details

Come learn how you can stop supporting the fossil fuel industry with your banking and investments — and instead take control of your money’s impact. David Elliston of CleanMoney.Us and 350 Silicon Valley will show how divestment has worked to create social change, and how we can use Sustainable, Responsible Impact investing (SRI) to change corporate behavior.

We will expose how large banks use our money to fund fossil fuel infrastructure. We will present specific steps how to find clean banks and move your money from the banks and credit cards involved with fossil fuels. You will learn how to avoid “stranded assets” in your portfolio. We will demonstrate online tools that measure the impact of mutual funds and help you build a balanced portfolio reflecting your values.

The session will include an opportunity to set some personal goals and sign up for free coaching from a support network of volunteers who’ve made personal divestment choices.
