How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
indirectly involved, through the Solidarity And Green Economy Alliance
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
The U.S. falls behind all other developed nations in developing alternatives to fossil fuels and rampant consumerism. Change is happening at the community level, where residents can choose to live more ethically and simply in cooperative and just relations. But such choices must also be made available to more people of color/ people living in poverty. A solidarity economy must stand with social justice movements. Building a solidarity economy is a huge challenge in the U.S., but the dominant, profit-first, exploitative economy is unsustainable.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
I am acting at the local level to build new alliances and grow alternative social-economic models in my own community
