What is

economic democracy?

Economic democracy is people and communities owning and deciding together how to manage our collective needs, from housing and food to energy and economic development. Economic democracy asserts that we have the power to dream, plan and build more just and sustainable futures for ourselves and our children.

​Economic democracy has played an integral role in liberation struggles and movements for social change. To learn more, visit our "Resources" page.
