Solidarity Economy Working Group Meeting
November 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CST
Solidarity. Equity In All Dimensions. Participatory Democracy. Sustainability. Pluralism. These are the five principles uplifted by the US Solidarity Economy Network to define a solidarity economy.
Solidarity is a social cohesion developed through common struggle. A solidarity economy is how we build a parallel economic system in the present more aligned with our vision of a free, democratic, and egalitarian society which serves people and planet in ways extractive market capitalism can not and will not.
Our working mission to educate, advocate, and build a community of practice in Chicago 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 ways we are working to further the solidarity economy
–brainstorm shared projects to grow public understanding of a solidarity economy
–revisit shared project assignments for zine/pamphlet highlighting Chicago’s solidarity economy initiatives
–recap proposal for #RadTalks event to coincide with launch of zine/pamphlet release
–evaluate the work of Co-operate WNC and their connection to the work of Western North Carolina New Economy Coalition
