The 2019-2020 Tour


In 2018, NESRI launched the New Social Contract project, which advances comprehensive, transformative, community and worker led solutions that offer an alternative to our current system and a possible future for our country grounded in democracy, equity and rights. In 2019, joined by Rights and Democracy, Race Forward, Working Families Party and Policy Link, we launched the New Social Contract tour to create a national dialogue about the change our country needs.
