Art has played a dominant role in the fight for racial justice for centuries. Enslaved Black people used songs to spread messages and express their sorrow, fear, and hope.

Join in to hear our storytellers describe how they use art to fight for racial justice and to discuss how we can engage with the arts to promote activism. Offered by Encore.org and My Life, My Stories. Co-facilitated by Bren Atchison, EBN Board member.

In describing the book "Just Money" (MIT Press), the publisher states:
“Money defines our present and will shape our future. Every investment decision we make adds a chapter to the story of what our world will look like. Although the idea of mission-based finance has been around for decades, there is a gap between organizations’ stated intention to ‘do good‘ and meaningful impact. Still, some are succeeding. In Just Money, Katrin Kaufer and Lillian Steponaitis take readers on a global tour of financial institutions that use finance as a force for good.” Because older adults control a majority of wealth in the US, how they use, spend, save and invest their money can have profound effects on the future of finance as a tool to build a more equitable and sustainable society. Hosted by Katrin Kaufer, director of the Just Money Program at the Community Innovators Lab at MIT. Offered by Elders Action Network.

We’ll discuss what you think about using additional and/or other metrics. Presentation by Donna Cohen, founder of Civics for Adults. Offered by SAGE.
