Hacking Capitalism: Divesting, Debt & (more) Ethical Money Management

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
In Hacking Capitalism, we take the concept of workaround from hacking + anti-capitalist values to motivate and instruct us on how to move past freezing and fear into positive action around our money.

Dealing with money realities that don't match our ethics (banking with Wells Fargo? Citibank?...) or fallout from personal economic hardship (behind on debt, bad credit) takes energy from our lives - energy which could be used MUCH better in movements, activism, or self-care.

You'll get specific resources on how to divest into banks that are more ethical, deal with debt, and think about your finances from a holistic, movement-inclusive perspective. We'll talk about class, white privilege, intersectionality and feminism to ground our work in the wisdom of marginalization.

Navigating social and economic systems that create the complex and often unfriendly world of finance, credit, and debt often equals finding your way around impediments. You don't have to like "the system" to navigate it well! As a matter of fact, those of us who are not "insiders" of systems are often great at navigating them -- we've had to figure out how, which is an advantage.

Given the toxic nature of these interactions, it can seem temporarily better to avoiddealing with personal finance -- but as those of us who've avoided know, it catches up with you. Start Hacking Capitalism and ease your finances today!
