Follow the Money

As elders many of us depend upon our retirement savings to provide a secure future for ourselves – and perhaps even something for our children or grandchildren. But it doesn’t make sense to be concerned about leaving money to those that we love – if our world and our social systems are all threatened.

We began this campaign with George Monbiot’s article on capitalism, to think more deeply about the connections between money and social injustice.

We’ve learned that the institutions that we trust with our investments are ignoring the financial risks of the climate crisis—investing our money in fossil fuels despite the likelihood of fossil reserves becoming worthless, stranded assets.

Our goal is to leverage our power as investors to ensure we’re invested safely and sustainably by demanding climate-safe investments.

We’re planning a series of webinars to learn basic steps that we can take, without needing to be financial experts.

Money is like water. It can be a conduit for commitment, a currency of love. Money moving in the direction of our highest commitments nourishes our world and ourselves. –Lynne Twist
