Steal This Poster

Hot off the presses!  We’re excited to share with you a new economic justice resource:  Change It Up: How Banks Shape Communities and the Economy….and What You Can Do About It.

New Economy Project teamed up with the Center for Urban Pedagogy and graphic designer Manuel Miranda to produce this fold-out poster, which tells the story of how banks have systematically harmed low income neighborhoods and communities of color, and contributed to growing inequality and poverty.

“Change It Up” is designed to engage New Yorkers in conversation not only about the failings of our current system, but also about what’s possible:  a new economy, based on equity, cooperation, racial and social justice, and ecological sustainability.

In the poster, we offer examples of how people can organize for and create institutions that strengthen their communities and advance economic democracy.

So what are some of these examples? We don’t want to spoil it — take a look forNE Poster yourself!

We invite community groups to use the poster in their outreach and education, as a tool to organize for systemic change.

Contact us for print copies of the poster, or to request a presentation for your staff or community members.

We hope you’ll also check out CUP’s excellent Making Policy Public program and the talented Manuel Miranda Practice!
