Economic Justice

We examine economic policies of federal and state governments and identify major transformations that are needed to ensure inclusive growth, protection of livelihoods, and to secure citizens’ access to resources and social services.

Through our public advocacy, we encourage federal and state governments to reduce and properly manage public debts to protect future generations from repayment burden.

 

We work with other civic organisations in advocating for economic policies and agreements that ensure people’s rights to produce goods and services and earn reasonable livelihoods from their labour and investments.
