About Rethinking Solidarity …
In 2005, grassroots activists from communities throughout New York City traveled to “global south”? countries of the Americas, including Brazil, Venezuela, Argentina and Mexico. Many of the travelers were
young people of color engaged in justice struggles in their home communities. Their travels inspired a desire to “rethink solidarity”? and broaden dialogue in NYC:
What does it mean to be in solidarity with social movements of the global south- those seeking liberation from a new global super exploitative economy?
What is the connection between those struggling in the global south and those who live precarious lives here in the United States?
What is the role of grassroots activists and organizers in the U.S., particularly those from working class communities of color, within the broader global justice movement?
Last chance to get your dance on, drink on, or intense conversation on in this Refugio space thats hosted so many throughout the last ten years.
