How This Works
Post to your favorite social media platform(s). Make sure it's public so others can see and share it. We'll look for tagged posts on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter and collect some of them here.
Tags IMPORTANT: We scan widely, use of the right tag isn't required, it just helps us spot new posts. We keep an eye on an evolving group of tags, including: #blacklivesmatter #justeconomy #afterthis #covidart.
We'll select some of our favorites here, and on Instagram @ justeconomy
Purpose We launched this on April 2, 2020, in the middle of a global pandemic. It's a terrifying moment. It's also a time to be hopeful, to imagine how we recover and how the world works #afterthis. The Black Lives Matter protests in May and June added to our curiosity about imagining a better future. This project is a celebration of creativity, ideas and insights from anyone, anywhere. There are no prizes. But maybe someone who should be listening will.

The COVID-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matter protests underscored economic and social fractures that were there before. Inequality isn’t simply about how much stuff you have, or how nice it is.
It’s about life and death.
