Just over a month ago, more than 900 of us gathered in Buffalo, New York for the second CommonBound conference. We represented many of NEC's 150+ member groups, and hundreds of other organizations globally. Participants came from 42 states, 5 provinces, and 22 countries including Malaysia, Nigeria, Cuba, El Salvador and Spain. They were students, teachers, farmworkers, community bankers, organizers, union members, and more — all hungry for the visionary solutions and strategies our communities desperately need.
