THE NEW ECONOMY COALITION (NEC) is a network of 175+ organizations imagining and building a future where people, communities, and ecosystems thrive. Together, we are creating deep change in our economy and politics—placing power in the hands of people and uprooting legacies of harm—so that a fundamentally new system can take root.
Our network advances change in three main ways:
(1) We convene and connect leaders to tackle common challenges in their work to build a new economy.
(2) We amplify stories, tools, and analysis, weaving a collective new economy narrative that can build shared identity, shift culture and policy, and promote a clear vision of the next system.
(3) We lift up the work of communities on the frontlines of interrelated economic and ecological crises who are organizing for transformative change, through right relationships and direct support.
Towards the end of his life, Dr. King was organizing a poor people’s campaign against what he called the “three evils” - War, Racism and Poverty. We see our work at NEC as continuing to make these connections between economics and social justice for all.
