Pandemic, economic freefall, isolation and quarantine. We are living in a state of shock.
Governments around the world have leapt into action in response – a torrent of public spending and intervention.
If done right, this could be an exciting breakthrough. Before this crisis, climate breakdown and inequality were already emergencies. Just weeks ago, governments were shackled by scarcity thinking. But that’s over now.
Organizations around the world are fighting for 5 principles of a just recovery, the pillars of a People’s Bailout. The Leap is an enthusiastic signatory to this effort.
And we are also launching our own People’s Bailout project in the coming weeks – working with partners to advance specific demands that begin with the current emergency, while planting the seeds of transformative change.
