How can we support neighborhoods, cities, towns, and regions as the fertile ground for the kind of economy we need?

Our unsustainable and inequitable economy is undermining our aspirations for a democratic society and it seems pretty unlikely that national governments are going to take more than incremental steps to turn it around any time soon.

There are, however, countless examples of bold action emerging out of local and regional contexts. From Richmond, CA to Jackson, MS, people are organizing to build local power and are seeing major victories that could point the way forward to a new economy.

This raises the question for day five of #NewEconomyWeek:

How can we support neighborhoods, cities, towns, and regions as the fertile ground for the kind of economy we need?

Today, and each day this week, we will be featuring written responses by NEC coalition members and allies. We are also thrilled to be partnering with Yes! Magazine to broadcast some of this week’s content on their website. Check out their #NewEconomyWeek page here.

Also if you haven’t already, make sure to register for today’s online panel featuring leaders from the Center for Economic Democracy, the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, and the Fund for Democratic Communities.

Sincerely,

The New Economy Coalition team
