Some key organizations in the solidarity, new and sharing economy:
Solidarity NYC connects, supports and promotes NYC's solidarity economy. The solidarity economy meets human needs through economic activities–like the production and exchange of goods and services–that reinforce values of justice, ecological sustainability, cooperation, and democracy. From credit unions to worker cooperatives, Community Supported Agriculture to time banks, or community land trusts to participatory budgeting, solidarity economy organizations are controlled by community members. Our vision is a vibrant and growing movement to provide greater economic security, improved health, and increased democracy for our communities.Contact us at info (at) solidaritynyc (dot) org.
