The Democracy Collaborative Is On a 30-Year-Plan for Changing the Economy
Blue Tent’s Eoin Higgins features the work and mission of The Democracy Collaborative in his piece “The Democracy Collaborative Is On a 30-Year-Plan for Changing the Economy”.
“There’s a lot of worker ownership and community development in different parts of the state,” said Alperovitz.
“Our goal is an American community in which wealth is democratized, ecological resilience is regenerated, and the marginalized become the core of concern,” the group declares in its mission statement.
Democracy Collaborative does this by supporting initiatives and coalitions around the country like the Learning/Action Lab for Community Wealth Building and the Next System Project. The collaborative has also invested in providing space for anchor networks where large groups can come together under an umbrella organization that gives them the opportunity to discuss the ways in which they can advance the democratic economic goals of the collaborative.
