How do we deconstruct economic cultures and shift towards sustainable models built on love, social justice and community support? In this skillshare we will examine the history of these models in South Texas, explore our shared working experiences and the challenges and solutions we have encountered. Participants will have interactive opportunities to try out social media marketing, pop-up market organizing and reflect on economic models in their home communities.
