A Living Economy

A Living Economy

In this moment of interlocking crises, a movement of movements is joining together to fight for industrial policy transformation that unites communities fighting pollution, workers fighting for good jobs, and frontline groups fighting racial and economic inequity.

We seek a new approach to trade that replaces protections for corporate polluters with protections for people and planet. We seek bold policies aligned with the Green New Deal that create good jobs, cut pollution, and build climate resilience for those hardest hit by the fossil fuel economy. 

For too long, economic policies have prioritized corporate polluters, not people and planet. Corporate trade deals and status-quo spending policies pad the pockets of CEOs while exposing communities of color, immigrants, and working-class families to toxic pollutants, climate disasters, and low wages.

Our cross-sector movement for a living economy is building unity and gaining momentum. It’s time for us to win the future we all need and deserve. Join us!
