About this session

As New York works to ensure a just recovery and post-COVID future, we must invest in infrastructure that supports Black, brown, and low-income communities that are building wealth, power, resiliency, and self-determination.

This workshop will address concrete actions that New York policymakers can and should take right now to lay critical groundwork for a future that is rooted in racial justice, cooperation, and ecological sustainability. These actions include establishing municipal public banks to invest in community needs, strengthening NY’s community-controlled financial institutions, supporting cooperative economics through worker-owned businesses and community-owned housing, and ending bank redlining and racial wealth extraction.
