We demand economic justice for all and economic recovery so that Blacks have collective property, not just access to it. This includes:
1. Progressive restructuring of tax codes at the local, state and federal levels to ensure radical and sustainable redistribution of wealth.
2. Federal and state employment programs that specifically target the most economically marginalized Blacks and compensation for those involved in the care economy. Employment programs should provide a living wage and encourage support for local work centers, trade unions and Black-owned businesses that are accountable to the community.
5. Reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act to disrupt the big banks, and urge the National Credit Union Administration and the US Treasury to change regulatory, reporting and consolidation policies and practices to ensure the continuation and creation of new Black Banks, Small and Community Credit Unions, Insurance companies and other financial institutions.
7. Through tax incentives, loans and other government-funded resources, support the development of cooperative or social economy networks to facilitate trade among Black communities and around the world. All aid in the form of grants, loans or contracts to facilitate this should go to Black-backed networks and organizations.
8. Financial support for alternative Black institutions, including policies that subsidize and offer loans with low interest, interest-free, or guaranteed low-interest federal guarantees to promote the development of cooperatives (food, residential, etc.), land trusts and health infrastructures culturally sensitive that serve the collective needs of our communities.
9. Protecting workers in unregulated industries, including domestic workers, farm workers and tipped workers, as well as Black women and prisoners exploited
