How can we build an economy that works for New Yorkers of color?

Economic democracy is about giving New Yorkers more control over their economy and a stronger voice in how decisions are made.

We started the hashtag #NY4EconomicDemocracy to find out how New Yorkers from across the boroughs are answering the question, How can we build an economy that works for New Yorkers of color? We want to hear from you before and during the Hearing! To learn how to submit your photo or video testimony, click here.

Below are some of the ideas and responses people have shared. In addition to in-person testimonies, we will also be presenting some of the best digital testimonies at the Hearing on Economic Democracy on November 20th, 2018. We hope to see you there!
