About us

Launched in 2018, the Groundwork Collaborative is driven by the idea that We Are The Economy: when all of us are doing well, that is when our economy thrives. We fight for progressive economic policy and narrative change that builds accountable public power, breaks up concentrations of private power, and affirmatively centers people too long left out of prosperity. Groundwork’s unique structure – part strategic communications, part think tank, and part issue advocacy organization – allows us to drive narrative and policy change with credibility, expertise, and impact. 

Over the past several years, Groundwork has launched a number of initiatives designed to establish the feasibility and benefit of alternative economic solutions. We examine what’s missing in the landscape — better data and modeling, a more robust cadre of effective storytellers — and actively work to fill those gaps. In short, we build the capacity needed to help the entire movement make the case more convincingly for new economic practices, policies, and approaches.
