John Harrington will speak about the topic of his latest book, Challenge to Power: Money, Investing and Democracy.

John Harrington's recently published book The Challenge to Power examines the inextricable link between corporations and democracy and identifies a variety of strategies and tactics that can be used by progressives, organizations, and institutional investors to thwart corporate domination of the earth’s resources, decentralize our economy, restore democracy, tame corruption, and regain community control of our financial resources.

John C. Harrington has been a leader in the socially responsible investment movement for over thirty years, and was a key architect of the divestment movement against the apartheid government in South Africa. He is currently the President and CEO of Harrington Investments, Inc. Author of Investing with Your Conscience, he is also one of the founders and former chairman of the board of Working Assets and Progressive Asset Management, two pioneering socially responsible financial services companies.
