Turning Americans
into Owners

About Us

Ownership America is building the next generation ownership society. Our vision is a nation of owners that enjoy dignity and economic independence. We believe that a healthy democracy depends upon broad participation in property ownership.

Employee Ownership

Employee ownership is among the most underrated economic policy success stories in America. We develop policies at the state and federal levels to accelerate the growth of employee-owned companies. In an economy where returns to capital increasingly outpace returns to labor, it is essential that American workers share in economic prosperity by owning an equity stake in the business where they work.
