I look at the trends around me — widening wealth disparities, racial injustice, climate catastrophe and more — and feel compelled to take action. It feels imperative to join forces with others similarly situated (i.e. self-employed folks) to continue learning and maximize our impact for change.
Terms like “sustainable,” “equitable,” etc., tend to be used pretty loosely these days. I spend a lot of time vexing on how we can find a common language and keep coming back to a framing question that helps bring things into focus for me: What public infrastructure is needed in order for businesses, communities and people to flourish?
