What is Dēmos: A Network for Ideas and Action LTD?
Dēmos identifies as a “think and do tank” that works to create a democracy and economy rooted in racial equity, using cutting-edge policy research, inspiring litigation, and deep relationships with grassroots organizations.
Why do we think the Economic Democracy program is important?
Dēmos believes there is a critical need to go beyond voting and direct representation by elected officials to rebuild trust to create more meaningful opportunities for Black and brown people and communities to participate in democracy in their communities, in their workplaces, and across all aspects of their daily lives. This program seeks to identify and promote practices for civic engagement across these arenas.
