Dorcas Gilmore, BASE co-founder, will be speaking on “How the New Economy is Taking Shape in Baltimore and Beyond” this Saturday, 9/19 at the University of Baltimore. The panel—which also features Jamal Jones of the Baltimore Algebra Project, Gar Alperovitz of the Democracy Collaborative, Michael Scott of Equity Matters, and Larry Stafford of Progressive Maryland—is part of the Institute for Policy Studies day-long People and Planet First summit, which will be bringing together folks from across the state to discuss the links between economic democracy, racial justice, ecological sustainability, energy justice, food sovereignty, and community organizing.
