Overview
The Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC) cultivates a new legal landscape that supports community resilience and grassroots economic empowerment. This nonprofit provides essential legal tools — education, research, advice, and advocacy — so communities everywhere can develop their own sustainable sources of food, housing, energy, jobs, and other vital aspects of a thriving community. This grant will support SELC’s fiscally sponsored project, Repaired Nations, which creates redress for historic trends of oppression through cooperative training and development for collective ownership. It also focuses on building wealth in Black communities by giving youth the tools needed to remain rooted: access to land and access to capital. Additionally, the center sponsors book clubs, workshops, and trainings to educate and inspire communities to engage in cooperative effort, while giving grounded, practical skills for collective ownership.
