Your Next Egg: Investing retirement savings in our local communities by 2020

By Janelle Orsi, Law Center Executive Director & Co-Founder

The next egg: Investing our retirement savings in our local communities by Janelle OrsiOur retirement savings hold transformative potential if we can get our pool of capital out of Wall Street and into our communities. Along with our partners at LIFT Economy and author Michael Shuman, we’re hatching a plan to channel that capital into local communities by 2020. Aside from developing and sharing resources on self-directed retirement savings, we’re aiming to build a group of 500 people ready to turn their nest eggs into a force for good. A group of that size can bargain with plan providers and custodians for lower fees and other benefits that smooth the path to local investing. Plus, we can collectively target our investments for deeper impact!


This could be your retirement portfolio!
