Solidarity. Equity In All Dimensions. Participatory Democracy. Sustainability. Pluralism. These are the five principles uplifted by the US Solidarity Economy Network to define a solidarity economy.

Solidarity is a social cohesion developed through common struggle. A solidarity economy is how we build a parallel economic system in the present more aligned with our vision of a free, democratic, and egalitarian society which serves people and planet in ways extractive market capitalism can not and will not.

Our working mission to educate, advocate, and build a community of practice in Chicago around a vision of a democratic economy.

At this month's meeting, we will:

--recap recent developments in Chicago's solidarity economy landscape
--discuss personal ways we are working to further the solidarity economy
--brainstorm shared projects to grow public understanding of a solidarity economy
--seek writing and research for sections of a zine/pamphlet highlighting Chicago's solidarity economy initiatives
--discuss how the Boston Ujima Project is employing a solidarity economy framework in their democratic investment fund and its adjoining ecosystem

We're meeting at Harold Washington Library 6th Floor South [exiting elevator head straight and make right at back wall]. The library is ADA accessible however it does not have gender neutral bathrooms.
