The Democracy Collaborative: 2014 Impact Report

Fighting for a new systemic vision

Download, read, and share our 2014 Impact Report, highlighting the work we’ve done across the country in the past year to advance community wealth building and systemic transformation.

From Executive Director Ted Howard’s introduction:

This report on the Collaborative’s 2014 accomplishments offers a testament to our energetic staff who crisscrossed the country, knitting together a field and a movement that includes everyone from mayors, university presidents, hospital procurement directors, young activists and community foundation CEOs, to leading academics, management theorists, cooperative developers, and others. What unites them is a shared commitment to move beyond a sense of helplessness and engage together in practical, visionary work to create an economy that is both sustainable and inclusive, an economy where all can thrive. 

In the pages that follow, we offer a snapshot of some of our 2014 programs and initiatives, in hopes this will feed in others the sense of hope and promise we sense across the nation, at this historic moment.
