We Can and Must Resist: Lessons for Communities from Cooperation Jackson

Cooperation Jackson
Monday, 20 May, 2019 - 19:30

Founders of Co-operation Jackson, Saki and Kali Akuno, share what we can learn from the radical political and economic transformation of Jackson, Mississippi.

As the world faces up to the twin challenges of climate change and inequality, local communities around the world are taking the lead on practical transformation.

Building on decades of work, Jackson Mississippi has become a hotbed for the radical municipal politics that are transforming power the world over.

Dedicated to economic democracy, building the solidarity economy and community ownership, Co-operation Jackson has been working to the Jackson-Kush Plan, a transformative vision that started in 2007.   

It was developed by a number of different organisations, including the Jackson’s People Assembly, to create jobs with rights, dignity, and justice that generate wealth and distribute it equitably based on the principles of cooperation, sharing, solidarity, and democracy.

Cooperation Jackson shows us that economies built on solidarity and justice are not only possible, they are within our reach.
