Who We Are

The Connecticut Center for a New Economy (CCNE) builds power, fights inequality and improves economic, social and racial justice for Connecticut’s unemployed and working people.

We develop leadership and civic engagement among community, labor and faith groups in order to:

  • Promote racial justice and immigrants’ rights
  • Advocate for workers seeking employment, the right to bargain collectively for better wages and a voice on the job
  • Support public education and job training,  and
  • Expand access to health care and affordable housing.
