Join us on Tuesday, June 3, from 6:30 to 8:00pm, to discuss Jackson, Mississippi’s recent New Economies Conference. Lead Organizer Kali Akuno will come together with other conference participants to report back to the New York community on Jackson Rising and look forward to what’s next in the struggle to bring radical solidarity economy initiatives to Mississippi and beyond!
Following the tragic death of beloved activist and leftist Mayor Chokwe Lumumba, nine hundred people convened in Jackson, Mississippi, from May 2 – 4, 2014, to support work toward his uncompleted vision: Jackson Rising. This New Economies Conference brought together social activists and concerned citizens to strategize for a new movement toward economic democracy through worker-owned businesses and solidarity economy initiatives. The Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung—New York Office hosted two panel discussions: “Bottom-up Co-ops: the Crisis, The Take, and the Worker Ownership Solution” and “Connecting the Dots, Growing Co-ops: Regional Cooperative Initiatives around the World.” For more information and photos from Jackson Rising go to our events page.
