NEC releases Policy Toolkit, including worker co-op asks

Our partners at the New Economy Coalition (did you know that we’re members?) released “Pathways to a People’s Economy” developed by a team of NEC member organizations to amplify policy wins happening on the ground and provide real examples of how to shift our economy from the bottom up. It provides tools for communities and organizations to make concrete policy demands to advance an economy for, by, and with the people.

This work is the culmination of two years of research and collaboration with multiple networks, policy experts, community organizers, and stakeholders, including the USFWC, the New York Network of Worker Cooperatives (NYC NOWC) and the Sustainable Economies Law Center. Click here to read the asks specific to worker co-ops.

The Toolkit contains 20 high-level policy demands, 70 detailed policy asks, and multiple organizing resources focused on four key new economy areas: worker ownership, community-controlled housing, financial justice, and climate justice.

Shoutout to our member Story 2 Designs who brought these asks to life through the peopleseconomy.org website!

 

Together we can build a people’s economy.

Together we can build a future for all of us.

This is how.
