The Connecticut Center for a New Economy (CCNE) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the economic and social well being of working families in Connecticut’s urban centers by initiating and supporting efforts to raise wages of the working poor, improve public education and training, and preserve affordable housing.

To that end, we are demanding responsible economic development in the urban centers of Connecticut. We are reducing working poverty by advocating for workers seeking self-determination and the right to bargain with their employers for better wages and working conditions. We are initiating public policy to preserve affordable housing and build strong communities for Connecticut’s working families.
