Building a Bottom-Up Chicago: A Bike Tour!
In one way or another, we’ve all experienced the messed up systems of power and capitalism operating in our city . . . but what does a democratic Chicago look like? Individuals and organizations all over the city are building new kinds of economies by creating alternative infrastructures for exchange and development of money, resources, knowledge, culture, and services. While these projects may seem isolated, they’re all part of the Solidarity Economy, a movement that is rooted in social, environmental and economic justice. Join on a bike tour and discussion of some of the many examples of solidarity economies here in Chicago! Stops on the tour include Hoyne House Cooperative, Rebuilding Exchange, the Experimental Station, and lunch at Backstory Café.
