Dear NEC folks,
Have you ever:
wished for more room in your work to reflect on the how and what of building solidarity economy movements?
wanted an easy way to connect with peers about common but difficult challenges in building solidarity relationships and practices?
yearned for greater cooperation and less competition among peers building solidarity economy movements?
You are not alone! The lack of shared vision and alignment about the how and what is precisely why a collective of longtime co-op and solidarity economy organizers created the Solidarity Economy Principles Community of Practice (or, the “SEP Community” for short). Come build us!
The tl;dr version is the SEP Community is launching March 19th at 1pm ET with an online Zoom gathering of leaders whose organizations have committed to upholding the Solidarity Economy Principles and Practices at solidarityeconomyprinciples.org. Spanish/English interpretation available. Sign up and learn more.
Not sure yet this is right for your group? Come get to know the vision for co-ops in solidarity economy movements that we’re growing together at these upcoming PeoplesHub events. All are welcome. You can register at the links below.
Introduction to Solidarity Economy Movements on February 13th.
Liberation Culture: Applying Solidarity Economy Principles and Practices on March 6th
Can’t make it? Visit Solidarity Economy Principles to explore the principles and practices, check out the Organizing and Reflection tool for groups, or to request a workshop for your community.
We hope to see you there! If you’ve got any questions in the meantime, shoot them over to con...@solidarityeconomyprinciples.org.
