About Our Guest:

Prior to founding YourStake, co-founders Gabe Rissman and Patrick Reed met as student environmental advocates at Yale, working to persuade the endowment to shift away from fossil fuel investments. With his student club, Gabe became the first student to file a shareholder resolution, asking ExxonMobil to cease donations to climate deniers, which succeeded in the subsequent year.
