What's a People Powered Economy? Why do we need one?
We want to live in a world where everyone can create and control the resources and relationships they need to live well. But right now, 0.1 percent of Americans own almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent of America combined. Over 25% of Bay Area residents are housing insecure, spending more than 50% of their income on housing. And the climate just keeps getting hotter and more unstable, disproportionately impacting already vulnerable communities.
It's time to change the rules of an economy rooted in pollution, exploitation, and wealth concentration to one where communities everywhere control their own sustainable sources of housing, jobs, energy, and other vital aspects of a healthy and resilient community. It's time for #PeoplePoweredEconomies everywhere.
That’s why we’re working with local communities to create community land trusts, housing cooperatives, and other innovative solutions that permanently preserve land and housing affordability.
That’s why we’re supporting community-based entrepreneurs to start and scale worker cooperatives, advocating for local governments to directly support worker coops, and cultivating regional cooperative networks to build a thriving cooperative economy.
And that’s why we’re developing new models of community-owned renewable energy that can help us transition to 100% renewable energy AND generate community wealth in the communities that have been most disproportionately impacted by pollution and disinvestment.
We aren't doing this alone. Join us in creating #PeoplePoweredEconomies today and 10% of everything we raise will support the incredible work of Cooperation Richmond and Planting Justice.
