America has entered a new era of social and political activism. Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, and the Capitol riot exposed anger as the country wrestles with inequitable treatment based on race and gender. Meanwhile, organized labor unions are becoming more appealing to workers. Increasing numbers of employees are urging the financial institutions that employ them to be more socially conscious in their policies and allocations of resources.
