“We don’t have to argue with anybody. We don’t have to curse and go around acting bad with our words. We don’t need any bricks and bottles, we don’t need any Molotov cocktails, we just need to go around to these stores, and to these massive industries in our country, and say, … make the first item on your agenda–fair treatment, where God’s children are concerned. Now, if you are not prepared to do that, we do have an agenda that we must follow. And our agenda calls for withdrawing economic support from you.”
— Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. King’s legacy of working for positive change lives on. To honor the great Civil Rights leader, we’re thinking about how his words and actions can be applied to socially responsible investing.

As you step forth each day, strive to be a conscious consumer and investor.  You vote with your dollars.  Together with others, your individual vote becomes powerful.

Be mindful with your money and sensible with your speculation.

Walking together, we can move toward social justice.  One day, may we truly hear freedom ring for all.

Enjoy a happy and healthy holiday!

Best regards,
