In these times it feels like the world is crumbling around us and there’s little we can do to stop it and move forward. But there is a foundation of solidarity, cooperation, and mutual aid that has been at the core of our communities for generations; and in these times we must lean on that foundation so that it can help guide our next steps.
Cooperatives, bartering, community farms, land trusts, and community financing and support systems are a critical piece of our resistance and survival. Join this session to learn about & share the systems of solidarity that have – and continue to – help build the world we want to see — one based on cooperation, respect for our earth and each other, and mutual aid.
We’ll learn about examples of global solidarity economy systems and models; discuss Alabama-based community land trusts, peoples budgets, and mutual aid support; and share our visions for Alabama’s future.
Save the dates, and make plans now to join us in December! We’re so excited to see you <3
