In the midst of a global pandemic, deepening economic divisions, a worsening climate crisis, and ongoing social and racial injustice, NYC stands at an historic precipice. We have a chance to redefine our values-- a chance to rebuild, recreate, and reimagine a NYC for the people and controlled by the people. Our city’s champions are the people building deepening relationships among all sectors in our local economy and fighting for justice.
We can create this world if we commit to transitioning our violently extractive economy to one based on solidarity, from a world based on competition to one based on cooperation. The time for local control is now. Our future is cooperative. This is how we do it.
