NOTE: Fri, Nov 13, 5-7pm: THE NEW ECONOMY GET-TOGETHERImpact Hub, 220 2nd Ave S, Seattle, WA 98101 - All around us, innovators are building cooperative, ethical, and community-rooted enterprises, reclaiming the commons, and democratizing and reorienting finance. We are finding new ways to share skills and goods, measure success, and meet growing human needs on a finite planet. At the same time, our growing mobilizations in the streets are building power to resist and replace unjust systems. Through all of these efforts, a movement is emerging that could change our society and the world. Join us to meet other advocates and practioners, build a shared narrative, and strengthen the emergent local network for systemic change. Cosponsored by UW Center for Communication and Civic Engagement, Moving Images, and others. More info
