The conference is envisioned as a virtual space for grassroots organizations, community activists, educators, students, and others committed to social and environmental justice to come together to exchange experiences/information, strengthen alliances and networks, and devise strategies to create an explicitly post-capitalist society using the “Solidarity Economy” framework.
The approach is grounded in the following core principles:
• Solidarity, cooperation, mutualism
• Equity in all dimensions–race/ethnicity/nationality, class/gender/sexual orientation
• Participatory democracy
Goals of this gathering are to :
1. Educate folks about what we mean by a “solidarity economy.”
2. Strengthen existing progressive orgs, especially those doing solidarity economy work.
3. Create a space for progressive organizations to share best practices and collaborate across issues and constituencies toward collective liberation.
4. Co-create concrete “Next Steps” for how we can implement cooperative economic practices in our community.
