Event description

Description

We’ve marched. We’ve rallied our politicians. Now, here’s another tool for you to use to remove power from gun companies (and those that support them).

Join Lisa Hodges and Jina Penn-Tracy from Centered Wealth and Andrew Behar from As You Sow as they lead a conversation on socially-responsible investing around gun control.

What you’ll learn in this online workshop:

  • A quick overview and update, including the main companies and political actors involved. We'll review what action has taken place since the recent Parkland tragedy and March for Our Lives.
  • Divesting from gun stocks. Your investment portfolio (whether it sits in a retirement account or is standalone) most likely contains companies that manufacture, distribute or sell guns. We’ll teach you about strategies to identify and remove these companies from your portfolio.
  • Corporate & political engagement. We’ll also talk about how investors are influencing companies to adopt more responsible gun policies through shareholder activism, and how you can get involved.

The webinar will be recorded and sent to all who register.
