How can I find a financial advisor who specializes in investments that are in tune with my lefty sensibilities?

My investment guy will only reluctantly agree not to buy any Wal-Mart. I want to go beyond that -- I'm awfully darn liberal, and I figure I ought to put my money where my politics are. I can afford to do less well in the market in order to feel better about where my capital is going.
But I'm lazy. I know from experience that I won't do it if I leave it up to myself, and I'll just have a bunch of cash in my checking account. I need someone who will handle everything for me, and just let me know when they move my money around.
Are there investment firms that specialize in progressive investments, or at least "socially conscious" investments? Or tools for finding such firms?
If geography matters, we're talking about the Seattle area.
