Another world is happening.

We’re a coalition of 200+ organizations building the solidarity economy in the U.S. and showing that another world is not only possible — it’s already happening.

A New Future

What is the solidarity economy?

A global movement to put people and planet over profits.

A set of principles, practices, and institutions that provide real alternatives to capitalism.

A system where all of the things a community needs are controlled and governed by everyday people.

A framework rooted in participatory democracy, cooperation, solidarity, and respect for the earth.
