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 My approach was to ask someone at the worker-owned bookstore if they used a local credit union, and then drop by the one they recommended and have a conversation.

In my area, several credit unions were restricted to employees of certain companies or government agencies, so there turned out to be only four that I was eligible to join with branches in the area. Not too much to research, then, for me.

As for retirement accounts, please boost any good advice you get; I also want to know.
