SE Responses in Time of COVID and Racist Police Violence.
Activity Date: Samedi, juin 27, 2020 - 17:00
Time Zone: GMT+02:00
Brief Description: In the US, the dual crises of COVID and racist policing are highlighting failures in our racist capitalist patriarchal economy, forcing us to create institutions that better fill our needs. Our panel will discuss grassroots solidarity economy responses - such as mutual aid networks, community gardening, bartering and time banking, and movements for community control of policing and resources - and strategize about bringing them together into a movement for systemic economic transformation.
Methodology and expected results: Mike Strode of the Kola Nut Collaborative, a Chicago-based time bank, will moderate this discussion among representatives of the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance, the Boston Ujima Project, and Cooperation Jackson of Jackson, Mississippi.
