Are you one of the many New Yorkers under 30 who feels like the economy is working against you—rent is too high, good food is too expensive, loans are too hard to get, wages are too low? You’re not wrong! Do you want to learn more about Solidarity Economy models built by and for everyday New Yorkers like permanently affordable housing units? Workplaces without a boss? Grocery stores owned by the shoppers? Not-for-profit banks controlled by the community?
