A New World From The Ashes Of The Old: Solidarity Economy Organizing In a Moment of Resistance
Popular struggles– ranging from earliest modern labor movements in Britain and the US, to the global Black Liberation movement, to Energiewende and other climate justice campaigns in Europe– have all demonstrated that to be successful, “resistance” work must go hand in hand with concrete visionary organizing.
Join the New Economy Coalition – a network of 180+ organizations building solidarity for a new economy – next Wednesday, May 17th from 7:30pm – 9:30pm for an exciting discussion co-hosted by In These Times Magazine exploring the movement to build a “new” or “solidarity” economy in the current moment of resistance and struggle.
The panel features leaders from across the country sharing how their communities have organized to simultaneously fight back far-right attacks and build powerful bottom-up solutions that model economic democracy, sustainability, and social justice as cornerstones of a new world in waiting.
