Lots of people have heard of Mondragon but many fewer know about its visionary founder and CEO, Fr. Josemaria Arizmendi (to use the shortened form of his name). Until now, none of his voluminous writings have been commercially available in English. At noon EST, April 22, Solidarity Hall will publish his Reflections, a selection of his insights on the dignity of the worker, the social power of the workplace, and the vision of cooperativism. The event will include a series of short readings from the book by Nathan Schneider (Everything for Everyone), Jessica Gordon Nembhard (Collective Courage), and several more activists from the solidarity economy movement. The event is free and a free PDF of the book will be available to attendees. This event is co-presented by Solidarity Hall and Zebras Unite.
