United for a New Economy (UNE) works towards its vision by building community power through organizing; community activism and innovative policy solutions.
United for a New Economy (UNE) envisions vibrant, strong communities where ALL community members have a voice in the decisions that impact them, access to economic security; which includes affordable housing and good jobs and the ability to live free of racism and fear.
Respect: We see a world where everyone is treated with respect and dignity. This means that no inequality, racism, patriarchy and any form of oppression. Everyone deserves to live without fear or violence.
Equity: No one deserves to be left behind. We see our neighbors sharing their stories and holding big corporations, elected officials and decision makers accountable. We see a world where the system is balanced by meeting people where they are without judgement and dictation of rights and resources.
Democracy & Human Rights: Our country is built on the principle that everyone has a right to stand up and fight. All of us should have thriving neighborhoods with affordable housing, good job, and a voice in building an economy that works for everyone.
Collaboration: We believe that alone we cannot achieve our bold vision. It requires collaboration and partnership at all levels. We build and strengthen transformative strategic partnership and impactful solidarity for the long term.
People Power: We see our neighbors who have everything to lose and still take the streets to rally for unity and dignity, because we see that our destinies are intertwined. In a time when so many families struggle just to make ends meet and face open racial discrimination, the movement needs to focus more on organizing and developing leaders to build grassroots people power we need to build a new economy that works for everyone.
