Building an Economy of Inclusion: Lifting All Voices in the Marketplace

Sunday, Apr 17, 2016, 2:00 pm

A movement is building in cities and towns in the U.S. and around the world to counter a growth-driven model of development that exploits people and God’s Earth for the profits of a few. This economy of inclusion is driven by workers, residents of marginalized communities, and people of faith seeking to apply their values to the marketplace. Hear about worker cooperatives, financial institutions serving low-income neighborhoods and locally-driven renewable energy projects, and leave with ideas about how you can get involved through policy or practice in your own community.
