Cheyenna Weber is an economic justice organizer and writer working to develop the solidarity economy in New York City. Originally from West Virginia, Cheyenna began organizing against mountaintop removal mining in high school and became active in global labor struggles in college. Her work on the solidarity economy grew out of a recognition that without an awareness of shared responsibility for our interconnectedness we are unable to address the myriad forms of injustice, oppression, and destruction currently dominating our economic activities. Through SolidarityNYC, a solidarity economy advocacy collective she co-founded, Cheyenna supports values-led grassroots economic development in the 5 boroughs.
Cheyenna is also active in GEO (Grassroots Economic Organizing) Collective, a media collective focused on promoting worker ownership and the solidarity economy, the New Economy Network, and the U.S. Solidarity Economy Network. A former national organizer for the Responsible Endowments Coalition, she also mentors student and youth leaders interested in economic justice.
