Event Description

Uncertain how to work towards a secure financial future while living out your values? Join Socializing for Justice for a Socially Responsible Investing Skillshare on August 5,

6:00 - 8:30 PM.

How do we manage our savings to best sustain ourselves and support our vision of a more just

economy? This is a chance to learn investment basics and discuss financial management with a

local progressive activist and finance professional. No prior knowledge expected: we'll start with

fundamentals and definitions. Participants should come away with 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.

Register at - Newcomers always welcomed!

Fee: $10-$20 (sliding scale) is split with the trainer.

Limited space - register ahead of time.

Credit cards accepted online. Cash only at the door (if space available).
