The urban farm volunteer and education day in April was a success– so the group is looking at future projects and research on food justice, alternative food economies, and community use of land bank property.

The committee will focus on:

  • Identifying groups whose mission is an economic one and whose model is one of solidarity.  Organizations who replace the basic exploitative relationships unique to capitalism with radically democratic socialist alternatives.  
  • Providing the local and the public with resources to find and support organizations that fit these criteria.
  • Establishing relationships with these organizations as a means to foster education within the local and to humbly provide them with a democratic socialist perspective whenever possible.
  • Collaboration with the education committee on continuing self education within the committee, as well as producing educational presentations, tools, etcetera for the chapter as a whole, and to the public.
  • Build a comprehensive lists of cooperatives, credit unions, and other solidarity economy organizations that already exist in the Greater Cleveland area.
  • Collaboration with outside organizations on programs that directly support these enterprises.  (Example The US Federation of Worker Cooperatives)
