Initiative for Equality, or IfE (pronounced “ee-fay”), is a global network of advocates and community members in over 115 countries, working towards a world in which social, economic and political inequalities are substantially reduced and no one is excluded from decision-making. We organize within poor, socially excluded, and marginalized communities to ensure that community members are empowered to participate in public dialogues, decision-making, and follow-up monitoring for accountability. We network globally to gather information, share ideas, develop leadership skills, and plan effective strategies for collaboration on equality-related issues. We are building a powerful, influential, democratically-governed movement for greater equality. We hope you will join us!
The Next System: In this short (4 minute) video discussion, Gar Alperovitz and others discuss why a complete overhaul of our political-economic system is needed in order to ensure a viable future for everyone. You can visit the webpage here, or read this article about the project. Better yet, watch the full 90-minute video discussion. Speakers from a variety of perspectives cover poverty, racism, environmental destruction, militarism, corporate capture of political decision-making and related topics, and what can be done about it. Take an evening, gather some friends, watch the full video, and discuss!
