The Center for Economic Democracy [C.E.D.] is a US social movement building organization, growing the capacity of grassroots communities to transform American capitalism into a more just, sustainable and democratic economy. C.E.D. engages progressive donors, private sector leaders and government officials to support popular organizing, economic development and cultural activism in our most vulnerable communities.
