Grassroots Institute
Mendocino County, CA
I have researched and written about corporate power for over 40 years. In 1998 I co-founded the radio program Corporations and Democracy. In 2005 I founded the publication Justice Rising: Grassroots Solutions to Corporate Power, published by The Alliance for Democracy. In 2015 we formed the Grassroots Institute and started facilitating workshops on Grassroots Solutions and Corporate Power; Citizenship in an Age of Corporate Power; The Common Good, Strategies and Solutions; and most recently Building an Economy for Our Common Good. In 2018 we published a full workshop manual to help communities present our course on Grassroots Solutions and Corporate Power in their towns and regions. We are now preparing a manual for our series of workshops on Building an Economy for Our Common Good to help communities identify and network the their own economy for the common good. Talk to me about helping your community with these type of efforts and visit our Grassroots Institute table at the conference.
