Justice Funders Presents- State of the Movement 2020: Visionary strategies to build a regenerative economy
From worker-owned cooperatives to community land trusts, and community-controlled energy systems to democratically-governed loan funds, grassroots social justice movements across the country are experimenting with real models for ushering a Just Transition that place power into the hands of people most harmed by the extractive economy.

These radical and visionary actions recognize that incremental progress is wholly insufficient for addressing the magnitude of crisis we face. Rather, we must invest in transformative approaches that have the potential to ignite exponential change.

Please join the livestreaming of our third annual State of the Movement event featuring movement and philanthropic leaders who will inspire us with their visionary strategies of simultaneously “fighting the bad” and “building the new” to usher a Just Transition toward a regenerative economy.

We will hear from frontline organizations that are building the political, economic and cultural power to create democratically governed institutions that allow our communities to self-determine their future, and funders who are ushering a Just Transition for philanthropy by redistributing wealth, democratizing power and shifting economic control to communities.
