“What if we thought of the Bronx as an economy of scale? And what if we try to create a plan for the borough that actually brings all of us in, where we share a vision, where we share in leadership, and where the wealth and capital is owned by us and bred by us? So the simple phrase is: what if we ran it?”—Michael Partis
Host Isabelle Swiderski sits down with Michael Partis, current Executive Director of the Red Hook Initiative and previously ED of the Bronx Cooperative Development Initiative to discuss the making of the Bronx-wide plan and what it takes to build economic democracy in a borough that’s been underestimated and underfunded but never gives up on its people and its values.
