Hosted by Just Futures and Justice Funders
Just Futures and Justice Funders are excited about growing the field of social justice investing – an investment strategy that is deeply aligned with social justice values, led by social movements, and supports community-controlled institutions. They invite you to join this movement of community organizers, researchers, and investors who are experimenting with this strategy in order to build the economic power of Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color.
This webinar is organized in collaboration with Just Futures, and will:
- Provide an introduction to social justice investing
- Explain how it’s different from mainstream “responsible” or “impact” investing strategies, and
- Offer an example of how one group is implementing it on the ground.
Social Justice investing is part of the Just Transition to build a financial system that divests from Wall Street and public markets and instead, invests in solidarity economies, cooperation, redistribution, and repair. It offers an alternative vision for a financial system that seeks to heal and uplift people and the planet.
