Building Another World: Community Spaces as a Transformational Tool for Collective Liberation

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How do we build community ownership and transformative relationships within the oppressive system? Stone Soup Community Center is collectively owned by 12 groups working for social justice. You will find a meeting of the Jobs Not Jails Coalition, a workshop on cooperative business or a Puerto Rican poetry night. We will explore how shared physical space can create amazing cross-pollination and solidarity. You will leave with a story of how a community with limited financial resources but rich in love and ideas can create a liberatory home.
