The Democracy Collaborative: 2017 Impact Report

Fighting for a new systemic vision

Our new 2017 Impact Report highlights the work we did in the last year to build community wealth and advance a more democratic economy. It has been an incredible period of growth for The Democracy Collaborative and our projects, including The Next System Project, the Healthcare Anchor Network, and new transatlantic initiatives, especially in partnership with community wealth builders in the UK. Without a doubt, demand is rising for systemic solutions to the problems faced here in the US and abroad, and we are excited to be able to bring both theoretical vision and practical on-the-ground experience to bear in helping meet this challenge. As our Co-Founder and President Ted Howard notes in his introduction, the “acceleration and deepening impact of our work in 2017 testifies to the urgency of our mission.” Read more below or download as a PDF.

Our continued impact in 2018 and beyond depends on your support:
