Occupy Wall Street--from Within

Believe me, I am not a member of the 1%. But through some family inheritance type stuff, I do have some stock holdings. It's a little hard for me to get interested in this kind of stuff, but despite that I do get proxy ballots from time to time. They always leave me feeling sort of guilty. I have no idea what way I should vote on thngs like Boards of Directors ballots, but feel that I should use my vote for good if I can.

If you're like me, there is some good news at hand. It's called Moxyvote.com. You can sign up there, identify the causes that are important to you, and then the researchers there will help you vote your shares in the way you would want. 

Standing out on the street and calling the wealthy to account is great, but getting your opinion counted within the halls of the powerful can be a good thing to do too.
