Creating a Sustainable System of Community Wealth and Social Change
From the 1970s to the present, wealth inequality in the United States has grown exponentially, and the gap between the rich and the poor continues to widen. The top 1% of Americans now own more wealth than the bottom 90%, and this concentration of wealth at the top is unprecedented in our nation’s history. It’s time to level the playing field.
Community wealth is created when everyone in a community has access to the resources they need to thrive. It is based on the idea that we are all connected, and that what benefits one member of the community benefits all members of the community. When we work together to create community wealth, we create a more just and equitable society for all.
Several organizations are doing great work to fight inequality. We can support them with our time, energy, and money. We can also join forces with like-minded individuals to create our own organizations. But, we can’t sit back and wait for someone else to fix the problem. There is strength in numbers, and the more people we have working together, the more we can accomplish.
