Sometimes the subheading on our Public Good homepage is misunderstood. When we talk about defending democracy, we’re not talking about nation-states or other institutions, but rather about grassroots, civil society efforts, that more often than not are in response to undemocratic institutions behaving as though they are above the law.
Promoting a just economy, democratic political life, and responsible citizenship through the democratization of capital ownership, is a value we share with our friends in the World Indigenous Movement and other human rights endeavors. We hope you will join us.
