Solidarity Economy Summit on Saturday
In the face of growing economic inequity and environmental devastation, we are called to come together to reimagine and rebuild our economy based on the values of equity, democracy, cooperation, self-determination, and sustainability. Please come to Impact Hub DC (419 7th St NW) on Saturday 12/6 to take part in a conversation with local activists, leaders and community members about how we can build a movement for a solidarity economy in Washington, DC, which is in many ways the heart of the current economic system that is failing us and our planet.
