Community Wealth Building (CWB) works to build just and equitable communities by promoting local and broad-based ownership; lifting up cooperative and culturally-based economic practices; developing the next generation of leaders; and influencing economic policy and investment decisions.
CWB is guided by a set of values and principles rooted in equity, culture, mutuality and stewardship. It is driven by the belief that economic systems must shift away from extractive models towards strategies that build regenerative local economies. Click here to view the CWB Values and Principles.
Through a partnership with Nexus, I have been introduced to different community wealth models and how they add value to the community. I want to think outside the box and not use the same tools that haven’t addressed racial and economic disparities.”
