I'm new to investing, and would like to be a socially responsible investor right from the start. My first step will be to transfer the $20,000 or so I have right now in two actively-managed funds (LBUCX,CUSGX) to either the Domini Social Index or Vanguard Calvert fund.

Aside from that, I have some additional money that I'd like to invest directly in stocks. Can anyone suggest any resources that are available for getting started with socially responsible investing in stocks? I've found a few SRI web sites, but they seem to deal mostly with mutual funds rather than individual stocks. TMF doesn't seem to have much on SRI, either, aside from this message board!

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
