We envision

An economy in which ordinary people collaborate to meet their needs, take care of their families, and use their talents and gifts to create the communities they want to live in.

An economy that builds people, their capabilities, and relationships, while it builds locally rooted wealth and economic justice.

An economy based on working together, not on using each other as resources and spitting each other out.

An economy based on meeting needs, not growing profits.

An economy that finally integrates our democratic values, rather than constantly undermining them.
