Democratizing Seeds, Soil, and Sun: Our Year in Review & What's Next

The Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC) got a lot done this year, and we couldn't have done it without supporters like you

Below is our 
2015 Annual Report to give you some highlights of the many ways we've helped create more just and resilient local economies across the country. (Click the image below to see a full-sized PDF with links!)


In 2016, we have even bigger plans! We'll continue to build upon the work we did in 2015, and also launch new projects that grow our collective impact, such as:

  • Launching a 501(c)(4) policy advocacy organization that will catalyze widespread adoption of city, state, and federal policies to create local economic resilience;
  • Creating an international network of attorneys focused on supporting sustainable local economies;
  • Publishing a book about worker self-directed nonprofits;
  • Incubating SELC-like organizations in other parts of the country;
  • And so much more!

We can do it all, but we need your support -- consider becoming a SELC community member or making a one-time donation today!

We're no longer just asking on behalf of our own small-but-mighty organization. Going forward, your contributions will be directly supporting grassroots policy campaigns led by communities around the US; new community-based law centers supporting worker coops, community solar projects, urban farms, and more in places that lack that legal support; and allied organizations that want to bring a worker cooperative academy to their community.   

We're building a movement for just and resilient economies! Won't you join us today?
