Another Economy is Possible — and is being constructed, brick by brick, all over the world, including in the U.S., the belly of the beast. The solidarity economy is emerging everywhere, based on the values of cooperation, equity in all dimensions, economic and political democracy, sustainability, and diversity. Come and learn from activists in the U.S. solidarity economy movement about the key role that feminist, anti-racist, anti-classist and environmental movements are playing in constructing the next economy. Find out about the broad range of solidarity economy (SE) practices and institutions that already exist in the U.S. Learn about emerging regional SE networks, and how to be part of the exciting process of mapping the U.S. solidarity economy. Connect to the U.S. Solidarity Economy Network (SEN) and our regional members, as a U.S. group or an individual, or share your SE best practices and networking experiences from another country or continent.
