We envision a future where the lives, leadership, expertise, goals and intelligence of low-income and Black, Indigenous, Latino, Asian and Pacific Islanders and all people of color are supported and enhanced by an economic system that is democratic, just and adaptive. This economic system is based on abundance and communal self-determination for communities of color and all people. It acknowledges the restoration and healing necessary to repair relationships and create sustainable resilience that allows regeneration to be possible. This system recognizes the interrelationship between oneself, the environment, and the greater community and that advancing intersectional work is how we will achieve collective prosperity.
