Building a Solidarity Economy

Transition United States2pm Eastern Time

Cooperation Humboldt exists to develop a solidarity economy across the North Coast. They identify, support and nurture local cooperative economic efforts that help people meet their needs without exploiting or oppressing anyone, without being exploited or oppressed by anyone, and commit to do so in an ecologically sustainable manner.

David is a "people's lawyer" who has sued corporate polluters, lobbied elected officials, run for political office himself, and been arrested for non-violent civil disobedience. He believes we must provoke—and win—a peaceful revolution if we are to survive.

David was born in rural Texas and worked as a laborer before going to college and ​then ​law school. He maintained a successful law practice before devoting himself to full-time social change efforts.

In 2002, David ran for Attorney General of Texas, pledging to use the office to revoke the charters of corporations that repeatedly violate health, safety and environmental laws. In 2004, he ran for President of the United States on the Green Party ticket and forced a recount in Ohio that helped launch the Election Integrity movement. 

In 2010 he co-founded Move To Amend, a campaign for a constitutional amendment to abolish the illegitimate, court-created doctrines of "corporate constitutional rights" and "money equals speech." In 2016 he served as the Campaign Manager for Jill Stein's presidential campaign.

In addition to his work at Cooperation Humboldt, he serves as a Fellow for the Liberty Tree Foundation ​where he facilitates "Movement School for Revolutionaries."

Food Secure Canada1:00pm to 2:00pm Eastern Time

As part of the Northern Sustainable Food System Study, FSC is hosting a web discussion (focus group) to get feedback on the tentative findings and policy recommendations developed through the Study thus far.  We want to know whether they reflect the experiences and perspectives of those working directly within food security and sustainable food systems in the North - do they reflect your priorities, did we miss something important, should we take something out? Join the conversation and let us know what you think!

Anyone is welcome to participate, however we are especially interested in hearing from those living and working in the North (defined for the purposes of this Study as Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Nunatsiavut and Nunavik).  The focus of the conversation will be on the federal policy and program recommendations developed out of the Study.  A copy of these will be sent to those registered in advance and we ask that participants come prepared to discuss them.
