Let’s Put Our Money Where Our Mouth Is

March 22, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Connections Call – March 22, 2022 – 8pm ET/7 CT/6 MT/ 5 PT / 4AK

As institutions and individuals we have a hard time understanding and being in control of how our money is used as consumers and investors.

We will hear from a few fellow Lutherans (who are) Restoring Creation as to resources they have found helpful, networks they are a part of, and potential techniques we could offer fellow churches and ELCA leaders to explore to enable us to be better stewards of our collective assets.  A critical ask of our Churchwide decision-makers in the proposed: Calling for A Just Transition to 50% Reduction in US Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 2030 involves a resolve to invest in a future that is bright for all.  We need to know how to do that from each of our contexts to see this intention into action.

A few of the tools we will explore include:

> Educating Pastors about socially responsible screens in their Portico funds,
> What is this Third Act! Movement? 
> How to check your personal investments/retirement funds: https://fossilfreefunds.org/
> Connecting with other Faith-Based Organizations to make a plan – https://www.faithplans.org

(You will get a link to the meeting the day before if you are on our Good Green News – register here.)
