Financial Activism: Eight Strategies for Everyday People Reclaiming Wealth and Collective Well-Being

Jasmine Rashid Jasmine Rashid, author of The Financial Activist Playbook: 8 Strategies for Everyday People to Reclaim Wealth and Collective Well-Being (Berrett-Koehler Publishers, September 2024)

The field of impact investing isn’t accessible to the everyday person. But to truly shift the flow of capital and power in our financial systems, everyday people have a critical role to play.

Financial activists are those reclaiming wealth and collective well-being for the 99%, tangibly helping redesign and build the just economy we deserve, in ways big and small. Through eight key strategies — talking about money, banking decisions, buying power, giving and receiving money, mutual aid, everyday investing, shifting budgets, and handling business — financial activists leverage the oft-hidden opportunities to influence big money for good all around us.

This session is a call to action for those who have faced decades of disinvestment and disempowerment by our financial system, and those who are ready to amplify the role of regular, everyday people in creating monumental, lasting change.
