Reclaiming Power through Racial Justice
Frederick Douglass said, “No republic is safe that tolerates a privileged class, or denies to any of its citizens equal rights and equal means to maintain them.” Monopoly power yet again dominates the US economy and has made our society unsafe for workers, consumers, and communities—leaving people of color most at risk of its harms.
In Anti-Monopoly Activism: Reclaiming Power through Racial Justice, Jeremie Greer and Solana Rice (co-founders and co-executive directors of Liberation in a Generation) argue for organizers of color to be embedded—and centered—in the anti-monopoly fight. A call for antiracist activism and advocacy, the report also serves as a historical primer for grassroots people and campaigns. Ultimately, we believe that the power to remake our economic system and secure liberation rests with the organizers of color who are building our collective political strength and reclaiming our economic power.
