Borderlands Solidarity Economy
Borderlands Solidarity Economy
A solidarity economy is based upon diverse economic activities that promote solidarity, coooperation, and democracy.

The concept of a solidarity economy originated in Latin America in the late 1980's largely in response to economic distress. Today it is a widely recognized alternative economic model that improves the well-being of individuals, communities, and society by addressing economic distress, strengthening social bonds, and advancing environmental sustainability. 

We are working to build a solidarity economy in the borderlands of Southern New Mexico and Far West Texas through raising awareness of economic alternatives that currently exist in our communities, and creating new economic alternatives. 

We  welcome anyone who would like to join us  in our efforts!   If you'd like to be included on our email list, please send an email to   
Please contact me too, if you know of any activity I should include on the "Alternatives Happening Now" page.
