This workshop will explore the work of organizers in Philadelphia and New York City in facilitating cross-sector organizing and building municipal-level umbrella organizations among alternative economic institutions. Corporate power is well-organized but new economy groups often lack the networks, alliances, and associations necessary to generate awareness, claim their economic impact, and organize stakeholders to push for grassroots economic development that benefits rather than harms our communities. Come learn how organizers and researchers are approaching this work, how they’ve used participatory research and mapping to support the organizing process, and what lessons they can share about winning economic independence and building political power.
