Move Your Money Resources
In early March, over 40 members of the Story of Stuff community gathered online to talk with a dynamic group of movers and shakers about getting their money out of nasty mega banks and holding them to a higher standard. With folks on the line from The New Bottom Line, Green America, New York Communities for Change, the Responsible Endowment Coalition, and PACT, we chatted with representatives from schools, churches, community organizations who have made the switch and are investing their money in a better future and healthier planet.
Despite a number of technological hurdles, I left feeling inspired. I came away bolstered by the great efforts being made across the country to ensure that how we invest our money works for us and not against us.
If you missed us online or are looking for ways to plug into bank accountability efforts and want to move your money, there are tons of great resources available online.
To get started:
Also, Green America has a great site that’s filled with resourced dedicated to breaking up with your mega bank which you can find here.
For those of you looking to change the way your place of worship invests their money, take a look at PICO’s “Our Money, Our Values” campaign.
And for the college campus folks, check out the Responsible Endowments Coalition.
