From Inequality to Solidarity: Co-Creating A New Economics for the 21st Century

Organization: 
U.S. Solidarity Economy Network

We are in the midst of an epoch paradigm shift, from inequality to solidarity.  Capitalism’s contradictions have birthed four great, increasingly interconnected social movements – anti-classist, anti-racist, feminist, and ecology.  We are deconstructing inequality and creating new, solidarity economy values, practices, and institutions,  based on love, cooperation, equity, and sustainability.  There are many ways that each of us can participate in this epoch shift.

Building The Solidarity Economy In The Context of COVID & Black Lives Matter

Organization: 
Kola Nut Collaborative, Cooperation Jackson, Boston Ujima Project, Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance

In the US, the dual crises of COVID and racist policing are highlighting failures in our racist capitalist patriarchal economy, forcing people -- especially those who are most marginalized under these oppressive systems -- to create institutions that better fill human needs. This panel discusses grassroots solidarity economy responses - such as mutual aid networks, community gardening, bartering and time banking, and movements for community control of policing and resources - and strategize about bringing them together into a movement for systemic economic transformation.
