Webinar: Make Y(our) Retirement Savings A Force for Good

Do you need a new, Next Economy Nest Egg?

Join LIFT Economy, The Sustainable Economies Law Center and Michael Shuman for an hour to discuss how we can collectively leverage our retirement funds to fund local social enterprises.

Trillions of dollars are invested in Wall Street through retirement savings, but banks and individual retirement account (IRA) and 401(k) administrators generally do not provide their clients with the opportunity to channel their investments into locally-owned, socially-just enterprises. Self-Directed IRAs and Solo 401(k)s are alternatives but are underutilized. This may be due to legal barriers, cost barriers, or lack of public awareness and education. We want to change that and tap into the incredible potential of retirement savings!

What would it take for you (and hundreds of others) to pull your retirement savings out of Wall Street and invest it in things that enrich your local community? Could you invest your IRA or 401(k) in, say, a local farm, solar cooperative, worker cooperative, or housing cooperative?

On this webinar, we'll explore these AND YOUR questions and share updates and next steps around our organizing work to mobilize hundreds of individuals and small businesses to harness retirement savings to re-invest in next economy solutions. We hope you'll join us, and build a truly "Next Economy" nest egg!
