What is a solidarity economy?

The solidarity economy is a post-capitalist framework of economic activity that is guided by the needs of humanity and nature. These needs take precedence over the interests of market forces and a price system. The goal is to create an “economic cooperative ecology of caring community” as Jessica Gordon Nembhard describes.


Necessity is the mother of invention, and history has shown that our current economic system isn’t working for all of us. We need a system of exchange based on mutuality and care. The amazing thing is, elements of a new, more caring, equitable economy are already happening! Check out the graphic below of some common examples, and learn more from the US Solidarity Economy Network.
