This is the time of year when a lot of people say they're going to focus on their finances, so we want to talk about so-called ethical investing. That's a way to put your money where your morals are, and it's taken off.

But how do you know if your money is making the impact you really want? From NPR's Life Kit, Lauren Migaki breaks down how ethical investing works and if it might be right for you.

These cases, and those of hundreds of others over the past year, have frustrated residents and police alike. They want the gun violence to stop.
