Investing in programs to fight racial injustice
Several financial firms are looking to invest in programs to fight racial injustice, using their influence as institutional investors to promote diversity and justice. Several firms have signed public pledges against racism, and others are making pledges to support local organizations.
One firm, Adasina Social Capital, was founded by a queer Black woman from rural California. It invests in Black-owned businesses and racial justice programs. However, it does not invest in companies that are detrimental to communities of color or surveillance technology firms that help jails and prisons track citizens.
Another firm, Activest, was founded after the Ferguson uprisings. Its team has backgrounds in government, finance, and philanthropy. They saw an opportunity to use their influence to advocate for change, and are urging investors to demand more transparency from Chicago bonds.
Activest is working with Adasina Social Capital to help bring new investors into the municipal bond market. They will charge higher interest rates for Black communities, and they are seeking to invest in diverse communities. Activest will invest in community-based organizations that work to help people of color develop their leadership skills.
