Community Wealth Building and City Economic Development

Saturday, June 7th, 11:45 AM to 1:00 PM
Room 444

A new generation of progressives are taking leadership roles in city economic development. This creates a promising opening to advance initiatives in community wealth building – such as using city policies and anchor institution strategies to support locally and broadly owned enterprises such as cooperatives, community land trusts, employee-owned firms, and municipally owned companies. On this panel we will hear from leaders in this movement and discuss approaches that are working, and what a city-based agenda for the future might look like as the momentum for locally owned, inclusive economic development begins going to scale.
