On July 19-21, the New Economics Institute is hosting a convergence in New York City called reRoute: Building Youth and Student Power for a New Economy. The idea is to bring together a diverse new generation of practitioners and organizers from across the US and Canada to share strategies, tools, and stories about our work creating a solidarity economy from the ground up in our communities and on our campuses. We’re getting organized, innovating, and finding new ways to understand our situation, meet our collective needs, express our creativity, and uphold our values.
