ABOUT US

Equity Economics Lab is a people-powered research and advocacy organization dedicated to building a more just and equitable economy. Amid a vibrant movement to advance the Green New Deal, Equity Economics Lab operates at the intersection of research, advocacy, media, and organizing to build consensus toward the foundation of a new People's Economy.

With a Lab team experienced in legislative campaigns, community organizing, media, and academia, what sets Equity Economics Lab apart from the rest of the think tanks is our expertise in organizing campaigns from start to finish while further building capacity within the movement for economic justice. As a new organization, we are currently developing a number of programs ranging from media, news, policy and issue research, to coalition organizing, and more.

We are a corporate free, 100% grassroots organization, which means our research is completely crowd-funded and accountable to the everyday people and community organizations supporting through small donations and subscriptions.

Our team at the Lab is comprised of researchers, policy experts, and community organizers dedicated to advancing a clear vision for a modern economy that works for working class people.
