Solidarity Economy and the Food System

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In NYC, gardeners, food cooperators, and worker-owners use solidarity economy models every day to transform our food system into one that centers low-income people, immigrants, and people of color. And more broadly to transform our economy into one based on the values of social, racial, economic, and environmental justice. Join the Cooperative Economics Alliance of New York City in discussing the following:

- How does our food system particularly work to disenfranchise immigrants and people of color?
-What are some real-life examples of cooperative and solidarity economy models?
-How does the solidarity economy framework/practice interact with international and social justice movements?
