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!
We are organizing a collective of individuals and small businesses that are seeking to use their retirement savings and potential retirement savings as a force for good.
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 and change the nature of the economy? Through organizing and collective bargaining we are hoping to co-create an effective means to utilize our collective economic power to effect change in our communities. You can start by filling out this form and expressing your interest and commitment to being part of the solution.
