If racism and oppression is systemic and structural, what are the opposite and opposing systems and structures? In this one-day, interactive workshop, we'll talk about collective organizing for self-determination, transformative justice, community wealth, safety, and well-being in our neighborhoods. Along with small and large group discussions and exercises, we'll talk about what communities around the world are doing to empower their communities through cooperative economics and mutual aid.


This is not an issue specific workshop, but we will cover organizing for social, environmental, food, health, housing, education justice issues. This workshop focuses on organizing structure and process and the solidarity economy movement with a focus on collective (non-hierarchical, consensus decision-making) and egalitarian structure and transformative justice process with a whole systems approach to organizing entire geographical areas.


This workshop can be applied to any organizing work you may be involved with, but it is also a call to action for people ready to organize within their communities for community self-determination
