Meet Our Guest: As more and more vegans look for better ways to invest for the future, the momentum to invest humanely continues to grow. We have a tremendous opportunity to make a difference by demanding accountability from the companies in which we invest. Since most of us need to invest to make sure our own finances are sound, we encourage you to do so while making a difference—for animals, people, and the planet—at the same time.
I have been doing animal activism and advocacy for two decades. I encourage everyone to consider going vegan and have been doing outreach with the Vegetarian Society of Richmond since the 1990s. I founded my financial planning practice to encourage fellow vegans to use their investments to influence companies in a positive manner with respect to animals and have been determined to raise the bar for funds that are purportedly “sustainable” and “ethical” .
