Thu, Apr 02, 2020 3:00 PM – Thu, Apr 02, 2020 4:00 PM NoGoingBack: The COVID-19 Policies We Need to Transform This System for Good

Online Event

Amidst the twin health and economic crises of COVID-19, we are seeing remarkable community mobilizations and the renewal of solidarity economy practices that have sustained us for generations. Strong mutual aid networks are emerging to nimbly navigate communications, logistics, and collective care. On every city block and in every small town, neighbors are supporting and caring for one another.

We’re also seeing local and state governments take steps to freeze evictions, ensure paid sick leave, house people without homes, free the incarcerated, and ban utility shut-offs to support communities during this crisis. These are important steps, and they are not enough yet.

We must keep organizing our communities and pushing our governments to ensure that we navigate these crises in ways that move us further from disaster capitalism and closer to a just COVID-19 recovery. What does this organizing look like? What are the policies that will get us there?

Join New Economy Coalition, Climate Justice Alliance, and partners for a participatory discussion to envision how we can transition the current changes to our system into the long-term, transformative changes our communities need. The conversation will be facilitated by Peoples Hub, an interactive online movement building school that is training groups like yours in communities where they live.

We’ll discuss current COVID-19 related legislation and community support practices, and discuss the long-term transformation that communities will continue to fight for to ensure community control of our economic system.
