As the country confronts unaddressed systemic racism and bias, many are searching for ways to promote racial justice.

Well, one way is to literally invest in racial justice, putting your dollars — no matter the amount — into funds, banks, projects and businesses that promote and advance people of color.

At time when the average worth of a white family is 10 times that of Black family and only three Black CEOs exist across the entire span of Fortune 500 companies, socially conscious investing is more critical than ever according to Kristin Hull, founder and CEO of Nia Capital.

Hull joins host Robin Young to provide tips on how and where to invest. Her recent article “An Investors’​ Guide to Investing for Racial Equity” appears on ImpactPHL.
