While opportunities have emerged for people to invest and grow their money without supporting the highly exploitative enterprises on Wall Street, many have begun to question whether such investments can meaningfully advance justice and equality. Do low-interest loans to BIPOC-owned enterprises repair harms of racial injustice? Or do they repeat the harms of capitalism by perpetuating the logic that money should turn into more money? Countless juicy questions have begun to emerge, and we want to begin exploring what it looks like to plan for future economic security while repairing the deep harms of colonization, slavery, and inequality. Please come share your thoughts!
