Solidarity Economy Maps

The DCP has recently made contact with a few groups affiliated with the Solidarity Economy Network that are working on mapping the solidarity economy in their locations. These are greater Philadelphia, New York (with an emphasis on Brooklyn), and Monmouth County, New Jersey. Each group is at a different stage, but they are all eager to figure out how to make their efforts usable and shareable with others. Hence their interest in the Data Commons! Stay tuned -- one day these efforts will grow into what Ethan was describing in an earlier post on mapping solidarity economy networks.
