Our economy contains abundance: prosperity, innovation, resources, creative activity. It could and should be managed equitably to support the well-being of all people and sustain the health of our climate and ecosystem. Why isn’t it? It is becoming more and more evident that our efforts to do good are being overwhelmed by an economic system working at cross purpose with our values. So while we are winning some battles, we are losing our communities. We need higher leverage approaches and we must move what’s politically possible to meet the unmovable needs of people and planet.

Please join us at this unique opportunity to hear from Aaron Tanaka, one of the nation’s foremost thinkers and activists putting the ideas into practice, from the Center for Economic Democracy and visionary behind the Boston Ujima Project to learn about what communities are doing right now to change the equation on who and what counts in our economy. Aaron will be joined by a panel of local leaders actively creating this economy in Seattle, through community land trusts; worker, women, and people of color owned businesses; and shifting major institution’s resources and money toward community control.

This event is being organized by the People’s Economy Lab, network of leaders and advancing projects that meet local needs by putting people and places first and the Rethinking Prosperity Funders Collaborative, a learning community on economic systems change for social justice and sustainability in support of the New Economy Washington Project.

This event is supported by the Communities of Opportunity Learning Community, which creates spaces for communities and organizations to share their work and gain additional skills across sectors to advance impact across the region.
