Socially Responsible Investments

Prohibitionists should consider restricting their financial investments in companies which deal in harmful products or which conduct their affairs in ways contrary to the principles of our platform. An easy way of doing this is to invest with "socially screened investment portfolios." A number of funds cater to this clientele. The kinds of companies excluded vary from fund to fund, so check them out carefully before buying.

Examples include the Vanguard Calvert Social Index Fund, the TIAA-CREF Social Choice Equity Fund, the Domini Social Equity Fund, and funds operated by the Calvert Group, Citizens Funds, and Ariel Mutual Funds. Ask your broker, or consult these websites:
