Remember, buyer beware, and check with "Morningstar Guide to Mutual Funds" (a "Consumer Reports" of mutual fund investing with ratings and comparisons) online through your local, public library, ... but three, diversified, low-cost, socially responsibly, mutual funds, that top my list for investing for retirement, are:
TIAA CREF Social Choice Equity Fund - TICRX
Vanguard FTSE Social Index Fund Investor Shares - VFTSX
Domini Social Equity Fund - DSEFX
Vanguard Health Care fund finishes in the top 1% of all mutual funds after 15 years, and is very low cost, and has very low turnover, but is now closed. It also buys stocks similar to that which a socially responsible mutual fund would buy. T.

Check these two out in Morningstar.
Use Morningstar Guide to Mutual Funds (an objective, comparative analysis), or similar (e.g. Consumer Reports), through your online, local, public library, to do your own research about mutual funds to buy for the long term.
