The Economy Is Changing—and So Must We: A New Charge for Nonprofits

In 2018, NPQ committed to emphasizing the need to remake our economy into a system that provides for more shared wealth and equity, one that values sustainability and racial justice. We have covered the topic in our newswires and have begun a webinar series that brilliantly combines inspiring vision with grounded experience of some of the foremost change agents in the field. We will continue this emphasis well into the future and, for those of you who have not yet engaged in this element of our work, we bring you one of our introductory pieces from Senior editor Steve Dubb. Don’t miss his next webinar on Thursday, January 10th!

Why Building a More Democratic Economy Matters for Nonprofits

Next week, NPQ will run a cluster of four articles, taken from the Summer 2018 issue of Nonprofit Quarterly magazine, on how to build a more democratic economy. This is the start of a year-long campaign to more fully explore this ever more emergent field which will include a series of seven monthly webinars starting in the fall, buttressed with supporting materials. This series will work to boost understanding and foster conversation of how nonprofits and movements can most effectively respond to our nation’s rising inequality.
