The Mountain Association for Community Economic Development (MACED) is a member of NEC because we believe in building a more just and sustainable economy. It’s what we’ve been doing in eastern Kentucky for 40 years.
CommonBound will be a workshop-heavy conference organized around some core thematic tracks. Each track will be curated by a volunteer planning committee and framed around a challenge or opportunity standing between us and a just, sustainable, and democratic economy.
Network Gatherings are day-long gatherings that will be held on the first day (Friday, July 8) of CommonBound. They are proposed and organized by volunteers who want to bring a group of 20-100 people together to increase the capacity of our movements.
