Alternative Economy Program

The Mexico Solidarity Network's Alternative Economy Program is built around principles of justice and the search for genuine alternatives to the predominant capitalist model. The Mexico Solidarity Network connects the Zapatista artisanry cooperative Mujeres por la Dignidad (Women for Dignity) with interns located throughout the United States. Interns receive training in the principles of alternative economy, then set up tables displaying cooperative-produced goods in public places, at fair trade festivals, and at universities. Interns act as the link between producers and consumers, revealing the human face behind production.
