    Mission / brief description:

    In 2020, as the Covid-19 crisis was ravaging our communities and demands for racial justice continued to grow, a group of grassroots organizers came together to imagine and create an economy that invests in community well being and resilience. The first thing we did was look to the past and learn from the long history of innovation that Black and Indigenous communities have led in response to disinvestment and disenfranchisement. We then looked to the present to see and learn from the wealth of activity that is already going on in Virginia and around the US. Now we are looking to the future by developing relationships with those that share this vision and organizing the infrastructure to realize an economy that truly supports everyone in Virginia .
