Solidarity. Equity In All Dimensions. Participatory Democracy. Sustainability. Pluralism. These are the five principles used by the US Solidarity Economy Network to define the solidarity economy.
Solidarity is a cohesion developed in the course of common struggle. A solidarity economy is how we build a parallel economic infrastructure in the present which aligns with our vision of a more free, democratic, and humane society that serves people in ways extractive capitalism can not and will not.
Our working mission to educate, advocate, and build community in Chicago which around a vision of a democratic economy.
At this month’s meeting, we will:
–recap recent developments in Chicago’s solidarity economy landscape
–discuss personal projects we are pursuing in furtherance of the solidarity economy
–brainstorm projects to grow the public understanding of a solidarity economy
