On March 17th, Ted Howard will visit Olympia and the South Puget Sound Community College to discuss the topic of Community Wealth Building.
Presented in collaboration with The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound, Thurston Asset Building Coalition, Northwest Cooperative Development Center and the Thurston County Economic Development Council and Enterprise for Equity.
This forum will ask, “What can be done?”
Community wealth building addresses some of the essential elements of a more just, equitable and sustainable system.
Community Wealth Building refers to local talent, capacity and institutions, rebuilding capital to strengthen and create locally-owned family and community-owned businesses.
Ted Howard, co-founder and Executive Director of The Democracy Collaborative, a national nonprofit research insitution dedicated to developing new ways to build community wealth and stronger local economies. Please visit DemocracyCollaborative.org for more information.
