Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy

3 City Case Studies in Mutual Aid

In this webinar, mutual aid practitioners in the Twin Cities, Chicago, and Atlanta discuss the past, present, and future of mutual aid. In the midst of COVID-19, mutual aid networks have emerged across the country. But what is mutual aid? And how does it connect with broader movements for economic democracy and a solidarity economy?

Addressing these issues are three panelists:

Danielle Mkali is director of Cooperatives, Transformation, and Healing at Nexus Community Partners in St. Paul, Minn., where she is helping disburse $3.1 million in funds raised during the uprising that followed the murder of George Floyd.

Mike Strode serves as a solidarity economy organizer in Chicago, Illinois, for the Kola Nut Collaborative, a mutual support network of people who are engaged in the reciprocal exchange of services, skills, and goods through a timebank system.

Dr. Yolande Tomlinson is a radical queer Black feminist Mama, educator, writer, and community builder who serves as co-director of the Organization for Human Rights and Democracy and is a co-coordinator of the Metro Atlanta Mutual Aid Fund.
