The Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC) charts the changing legal territory of the new economy, educating communities and individuals about the possibilities and limits of creative economic structures, and advocating for laws that clear the way for more sustainable economic development.

SELC provides essential legal tools — education, research, advice, and advocacy — to support this transition to localized, resilient economies. Our work focuses on practices that promote justice and sharing, including Cooperatives, Barter & Local Currencies, Community Enterprises, Local Investing, Cohousing, Urban Agriculture, and other innovative economic strategies.

Please support us with a donation today. Any amount makes a big difference. Thank you.

Based in Oakland, California, SELC is a fiscally sponsored project of Community Ventures, a California 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Learn more about SELC at our website
