Director, Community Wealth Building Programs
Democratic by Design
We cannot return to business as usual and we must resist at all costs a doubling down on neoliberalism that has pushed us beyond ecological limits and led us down a path of wealth extraction, inequality, poverty and precariousness. The on-the-ground solutions and experiments around bold alternatives for economic democracy exist. Now is the time to step fully into the transformative potential of local Green New Deals, grounded in community wealth building as the main means of rebuilding our local economies and modeled on principles of economic democracy. We can, and we must, build a new political economic system from the ground up that serves all people and the planet.
