Mennonite Mutual reaches out to Friends

Mennonite Mutual Aid
, whose SRI mutual funds I mentioned earlier, are now working with a number local Quakers in Richmond to offer health savings accounts tied to MMA's SRI funds. This is an interesting development in that it combines elements of two movements focused on consumer empowerment - socially responsible investing and consumer-driven health care.

According to MMA, the company "does not duplicate programs offered by Friends." Instead, they are hoping to enter "a partnership that will help all Friends move forward on their holistic stewardship journeys."
