Remaking The Economy: How To Change Our Stories About The Economy?

April 17 , 2:00 pm EDT 3:30 pm EDT

What are the stories that we need to tell to better understand our economy, and lay the groundwork for building a more inclusive, democratic world? Storytelling—the construction of spoken or written accounts of a series of events that we tell each other to understand our world—offers critical tools to build movements, upend myths that hold us back, and construct cultures that can sustain a democratic economy. 

This webinar conversation, a coproduction of NPQ and the BLIS Collective, takes a deep look at how to use storytelling to advance transformative change.  Our panelists are: 

  • Peggy Bailey is vice president for housing and income security at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, based in Washington, DC. 
  • Jessica Feingold is co-CEO of Common Future, based in Brooklyn, NY. 
  • Jeremie Greer is co-founder and co-executive director of Liberation in a Generation, based in Washington, DC.  
  • Nick Tilsen (Lakota) is cofounder and CEO of the NDN Collective, based in Rapid City, South Dakota. 

This webinar will explore: 

  • What are the narrative roadblocks to building a more liberatory economy? 
  • What myths are holding back racial and economic justice work? 
  • What are new stories that need to be told? 
  • How can one engage in narrative change work for the long haul? 
  • What is the infrastructure that can advance narrative change work? 
  • What are the connections between narrative work, policy, and culture? 
  • How can people advance new stories about the economy in their own work? 

Whether you’re a social movement activist, nonprofit leader, board member, or engaged in community-based organizing, this webinar will provide you with real-life examples and lessons learned that can inform your work in your own community.
