New Economy Project’s mission is to build a new economy that works for all, based on principles of cooperation, democracy, equity, racial justice, and ecological sustainability. We work with community groups to achieve this mission by (1) challenging corporations that harm communities and perpetuate inequality and poverty; and (2) building strong local economies, by fostering democratically-structured, community-controlled initiatives such as worker cooperatives, community development credit unions, community land trusts, and mutual housing. We believe a world is possible in which all people live in safe, healthy, thriving communities, and that fundamental change is needed to achieve that world.
