Woodbine Solidarity Society Series: Learning Liberation From Solidarity Economies says
Woodbine Ecology Center invites you to join us for the third installment of our multi-part Solidarity Society Series this April 30th, which continues this time with an afternoon of learning and discussion on the concept of the “solidarity economy” with a focus on current and historical examples that are being built or still practiced today.

This event will feature a report back presentation from members of Woodbine’s staff who recently attended the first-ever North American Social Solidarity Economy Forum (NASSE Forum) in Detroit along with a conversation about the lessons to be learned from solidarity economies. We will examine what solidarity economies are and can be, present examples of active projects in communities across the world, and discuss what an economy that works for the people – instead of the other way around – can mean for liberation and struggles such as climate and social justice.

Woodbine's Solidarity Society Series aims to look closely at what we can learn from these kinds of efforts and communities, and through dialogues, workshops, and presentations, we will explore what "solidarity" means and what it looks like, particularly in crisis. Inspired by the belief that what happens after a crisis depends on what ideas are in place before hand, we seek to cultivate those ideas, social values, and everyday practices in our own organizations and communities to move from crisis to liberation.

Join us for this FREE evening of good people and engaging conversation as we begin to seek together how we can build our own solidarity society amidst a world in crisis.

We are proud to be presenting this third installment in partnership with our friends at the Chinook Fund.
