As a socially-conscious consumer or investor, how do you determine which corporations are fulfilling their social and environmental responsibilities (and are deserving of your money)?

In the age of Covid-19, racial inequity, and climate change, decisions about where we spend our time and money are powerful. Publicly-traded companies are accountable to customers, investors, and shareholders, including through shareholder resolutions and criteria that companies must meet to be included in some large investment portfolios (such as Blackrock's). Making informed decisions about your purchases and investments can be a powerful way to help accelerate the reshaping of our economy and planet.

We'll look at ways that everyone can make decisions about what to buy or invest in that align with their values.
