The economy we know today is founded on the theft of indigenous land and lives, slavery, and colonialism. This legacy lives with us in many ways, including an entrenched racial wealth gap that leaves black and brown communities without basic economic security and a growing prison economy that profits off the misery of those same communities.
In this moment of visionary leadership and resistance from communities of color, we ask, “what are the economic tools and strategies that will dismantle systemic racism and move us closer to collective liberation?”
