Building A Just Economy for the Poor People's Movement with Gwendolyn Hallsmith

  • The Unitarian Church of Montpelier 130 Main Street Montpelier, VT, 05602 United States (map)

The workshop will define and describe the key economic structures which systematically transfer wealth from humanity and nature to an increasingly small elite. We will also explore how new systems are being pioneered by movement groups locally and around the world to transform the old ways to create sustainable well-being for all.
