Can someone recommend a good resource on moving off of corporate banking and to more socially responsible alternatives, like credit unions?

In particular, curious about how one would get and evaluate the alternatives. Both for everyday checking account type stuff and for retirement savings (eg alternatives to Vanguard?), ideally.

Thx 🙏💗

@anaulin The choices for credit union are going to be specific to your area. In the US, it's helpful to join one that participates in co-op network shared branching.

As far as retirement savings, there don't seem to be a lot of non-corporate options. I'm excited about groups like EBPREC as a way to invest ethically and locally. In general, equity in cooperative housing seems to be the closest thing there is.
