New Economy Maryland
New Economy Maryland seeks to help build an economy that better serves all people and protects our planet. We celebrate this moment of opportunity to advance a bold, creative vision of a New Economy that is both rooted in place and committed to peace.
More and more people across the political spectrum are coming to see that the old economy has failed us. There is much to be told about how the New Economy is taking shape in communities all over. Luckily it is not just a story about what should happen someday, but about the inspiring work already underway. We strive to raise up the good work in our community and learn from powerful examples around the globe.
Embedded in this project is the New Economy Maryland Fellowship program.
