Ensure your mutual funds are weapons-free
Military weapon companies derive their immense profits from military interventions, the global arms trade, and the arming of our streets. It is literally in the best interest of these companies for wars and street violence to continue and even increase. Most people would agree that this isn’t right, and yet, if you invest in mutual funds, you might be inadvertently supporting these weapons companies. The very nature of mutual funds makes it very hard to keep track of all of the companies being invested in, BUT there is an awesome tool out there, weaponfreefunds.org, where you can search which mutual funds are weapons free and which are not. You can then talk to your financial advisor (or whoever you buy your funds through) and ask to switch out of any of your funds that support weapons companies.
