Gibson's Bookstore is pleased to welcome Tanja Hester as she presents her new book Wallet Activism: How to Use Every Dollar You Spend, Earn, and Save as a Force for Change.

How do we vote with our dollars, not just to make ourselves feel good, but to make a real difference?

Wallet Activism challenges you to rethink your financial power so can feel confident spending, earning, and saving money in ways that align with your values.

While we call the American system a democracy, capitalism is the far more powerful force in our lives. The greatest power we have—especially when political leaders won’t move quickly enough—is how we use our money: where we shop, what we buy, where we live, what institutions we entrust with our money, who we work for, and where we donate determines the trajectory of our society and our planet. While our votes and voices are essential, too, Wallet Activism helps you use your money for real impact.

Wallet Activism goes beyond simple purchasing decisions to explore:
   The impacts a financial decision can have across society and the environment
   How to create a personal spending philosophy based on your values
   Practical questions to quickly assess the “goodness” of a product or an entity you may buy from
   The ethics of earning money, choosing what foods to eat, employing others, investing responsibly, choosing where to live, and giving money away
