On this webinar, we learned about why we need transparency from companies around their contributions to the climate crisis and how they’re fueling harm in BIPOC communities. Many of us are told that being financially responsible means investing in stocks and bonds and saving for retirement. But if the world goes up in flames, our 401(k)s won’t help us. Wall Street and fossil fuel firms want to keep us in the dark about their contributions to climate chaos, environmental racism, and abuse of Indigenous rights. This puts everyone’s finances, our communities and our planet at risk!
Speakers helped us understand what the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is doing to increase transparency and help investors make responsible decisions. We took action and sent a message to the SEC that we support their efforts and advocate for making them even stronger!
