By learning more about who has it, who doesn’t, and who benefits from where we spend, bank, and borrow, we can become more empowered. Let’s get engaged in a conscientious way, because our choices affect more than just our own checkbooks. It’s time to start making more active decisions, i.e. Powerful, Peaceful Activism.

*Intersectional awareness reminder: There’s definitely no such thing as talking about money without talking about class, and no talking about class without talking about race and gender. This can make it feel overwhelming and is also what makes money have such high potential for political empowerment.
