SolidarityNYC connects, supports, and promotes New York City’s solidarity economy.

 

From 2008-2011, Caroline Woolard was a core member of the collective SolidarityNYC, creating educational materials, launching a logo and a  website, raising funds, creating a map of initiatives, and co-producing short videos about economic justice initiatives in New York City.

SolidarityNYC is a collective of organizers and academics who promote, connect, and support New York City’s solidarity economy. Solidarity economy practices utilize values of justice, democracy, cooperation, and mutualism to meet community needs. Our collective renders these practices visible, through mapping and filmmaking, and brings the sectors of the solidarity economy into greater cooperation with each other for enhanced economic and political power through education, organizing, and research. 

SolidarityNYC's vision is a vibrant and growing movement to provide greater economic security, improved health, and increased democracy for our communities.
