Investing Our Money for Good

How to divest from pollution and pain,
 empower the powerless and heal the earth!

Saturday, November 15 ~ 9:30 am - 3 pm  
First United Methodist Church
1376 Olive Street, Eugene

Tired of investing in pollution and injustice?
Want to invest in the powerless and a clean energy future?
Disillusioned with not knowing what your money is really doing?
Been meaning to explore investments that express what you value?
It’s not that hard.

Let’s share the tools and wisdom.  We can do this together!!!

Join with the Faith Caucus of 350Eugene and Eugene Interfaith Earthkeepers in a day of learning how make moral investments, how to use our hard-earned capital to empower marginalized communities and leverage a clean energy future, how to divest from doing harm.

Andy Loving We welcome Andy Loving, Certified Financial Planner (C.F.P.), lifelong social justice advocate and ordained minister to Eugene.  Along with his wife and business partner, Susan Taylor, Andy runs the financial firm Just Money Advisors in Louisville, Kentucky.  Andy believes how we use our money is one of the best indicators of what we value most and how we understand our journeys of faith, no matter what path we’re on.  

For those of us who care deeply about climate disruption, poverty and pervasive economic inequality, Andy can provide the tools for community investing where individuals and community-minded institutions, including churches and other communities of faith, can divest from what does harm and put their capital into financial institutions that serve disenfranchised communities, invest in enterprises that heal the earth and use our money to empower a clean energy future.  In many cases, we can make these moral choices and receive a competitive return all at the same time.

 

See what's happening in October!
