Remaking the Economy: Finding the Levers for System Change
Event Category 

How does social change happen? Join us to explore economic system change from multiple vantage points: including community-based economic development, electoral organizing, and group facilitation—with an eye to identifying unexpected intersections and areas of alignment.

For this discussion, panelists are:

Sendolo Diaminah - co-director of Carolina Federation, a statewide group that combines electoral work with base-building local grassroots community organizing. In 2020, the group organized its first campaigns in four North Carolina counties.

Lela Klein - co-executive director of Co-op Dayton, a nonprofit incubator of cooperatives. Klein was part of a team that engaged in a 6-year-long co-op organizing campaign that culminated in May 2021 opening of Gem City Market, a food co-op in West Dayton, a primarily Black neighborhood.

Tuesday Ryan-Hart - co-founder and system change strategist for The Outside, a social change consultancy that helps build infrastructure for equitable systems change and which works with a wide range of groups across the globe in areas such as employment policy, hunger alleviation, homelessness, and refugee assistance.

Moderator is Steve Dubb, NPQ senior editor and economic justice program director.
