Grassroots Economic Organizing (GEO) is a decentralized collective of educators, researchers and grassroots activists working to promote an economy based on democratic participation, worker and community ownership, social and economic justice, and ecological sustainability–a “solidarity economy”–through grassroots journalism, organizing support, cross-sector networking and movement-building and the publication of educational and organizational resources. Since 1991, GEO has published the great GEO Newsletter. The GEO website is an amazing resource on which many people, like Marnie Thompson, depend.
Recently, GEO published “Marion Barry: DC’s Co-op Mayor” based on my paper “Home Rule from Below: The Cooperative Movement in Washington, DC.”
