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. 11 am - 1 pm EST.
