What if you had a chance to create a new economy? What if anyone could participate? How would you create the world as it should be?
Thousands of ADP members are working together to answer these questions. Together, we have built a Community Economy worth millions. Together, we have created living wage jobs for those who are most in need. Together, we have leveraged people power and economic power. We are architects - creating a sustainable model for our future.
Based in Massachusetts, the Alliance to Develop Power/ADP is a community organization with a twenty year history of creating change in the lives of low income people and people of color. Through our innovative model, the ADP Community Economy preserves affordable housing, creates businesses that are run by our members, and recycles profits back into our community– funding youth summer lunch programs, peer support groups for teens, food pantries for families in need, and financial stability classes, to name just a few.
At ADP, we believe in the dignity of the human spirit. We believe that sustainability comes when people take control over decisions that affect their lives. We believe that everyone has the potential to generate capital, and that those of us who seek to innovate a new economy will do so not out of division and exploitation but out of solidarity and love.
Join us in expanding this model for prosperity. Together, we can expand the ADP Community Economy and generate a quarter of a billion dollars in wages and benefits by 2014.
