First Mass Meeting of the Socially Responsible Investment Coalition

Color-coordinated Eliana Theodorou ’12 writes in to holla:

First Mass Meeting of the Socially Responsible Investment Coalition

Do you care about where Wesleyan’s money goes? Would you rather see our endowment invested in clean energy than in coal and weapons manufacturers? Would you rather see Wesleyan put its money in local banks who would reinvest in the Middletown community than in big banks? And would you like to do all this while maintaining profitable returns on the endowment so we can all continue to get financial aid?

Then come to the FIRST MASS MEETING OF S.R.I.C., the Socially Responsible Investment Committee. We will be discussing plans for the year, including a campaign for investment transparency, plans to partner with the WSA, and an upcoming conference in New York over fall break to learn more about what other schools are doing! There are lots of ways to get involved this year!

Date:   Oct. 6
Time:   4:00 PM – 5:30 PM
Place:  University Organizing Center (between Beta and Eclectic)
Jesse:   Eisenberg
