Forum -- Jumpstarting the New Economy in Philadelphia
Where: SEIU 32 BJ
455 N. 5th St. (between Spring Garden and Callowhill), Philadelphia
On Tuesday, June 25th, an emerging coalition of social innovators in Philadelphia will be declaring their “independence from a rigged economy that traps Philadelphia in failure” and will describe exciting new approaches to creating broadly shared prosperity in our City. In other words, we'll be discussing a new Declaration of Independence: this time from Wall Street!
Our exciting crew of speakers:
David Woo - past President of Weaver's Way Co-op, the largest food co-op in Philadelphia, and the spearhead of a surging number of projects to grow the co-op sector in our region
Paul Glover - developer of "Ithaca Hours", and a nationally recognized expert in new money systems and local health care cooperatives
Mike Krauss - Chair of the Pennsylvania Public Banking Project, who will discuss how a public Bank of Philadelphia can enable locally directed economic development independent of the private banking oligarchy
Jill Feldstein - chief organizer of the Take Back the Vacant Land Coalition, a driving force to create a Land Bank in Philadelphia to revitalize neighborhoods for people not developers
Meenal Raval - developer of Time4Time in Philadelphia and Philly EcoCity who will discuss how “new money” systems can move Philadelphia into the “green economy.”
