Inspire a New Economy Rooted in Solidarity & Care for Our Common Home

February 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST

Join a virtual conversation to reflect and respond to Pope Francis’s call to inspire a new economy. We are meeting in anticipation of the Economy of Francesco, a global gathering convened by Pope Francis in Assisi, Italy, March 26 – 28, 2020, and are animated by the Pope’s call to “enter into a ‘covenant’ to change today’s economy and to give a soul to the economy of tomorrow.”

On December 16 more than 150 people gathered for our first virtual reflection to foster learning and collaboration to transform our economy.

RSVP here for the virtual conversation/reflection on Wednesday, February 19th from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM EASTERN STANDARD TIME to reflect and share on: “new metrics for an alternative economy”, “building a new economic narrative, “growing the cooperative economy”, and “mobilizing committed investors.”
