We must rewrite the rules of power that have led us to the current crisis of rights and democracy our country is facing. A significant part of the answer to that challenge lies in communities, workers, and social movements on the frontlines. If we face a democracy in peril, who better to guide us toward a different future than those with the most at stake, who also have the boldest solutions?
The New Social Contract project will focus on these community and worker-driven solutions. Our goal is to generate dialogue on how we will build a new, bottom-up understanding of ourselves as a country that can inform and shape our most important collective decisions and shared assumptions.
The New Social Contract offers a framework grounded in human rights, equity and inclusive democracy. It organizes dialogues and workshops on what kind of new social contract we need and offers materials and analysis emerging out of community and social movement efforts.
