It Takes Roots: Solidarity to Solutions Week in San Francisco

Event location San Francisco • San Francisco, CA, United States

Join us from September 8-14, 2018 in the San Francisco Bay Area for the Solidarity to Solutions Week (#Sol2Sol)

The #ItTakesRoots Solidarity to Solutions (#Sol2Sol) Week is taking place parallel to the Global Climate Action Summit (GCAS), where California Governor Jerry Brown and global business leaders will push corporate schemes as their answer to climate change.

#Sol2Sol will highlight frontline communities’ solutions that address the interlinked crises of climate, economic, and racial justice. Through cross-sector, solutionary strategy exchange, local solutions tours, community leadership development, creative actions, and democratic popular assembly, we will provide direction on bold and transformative pathways for change and shift the narrative around false top-down marketdriven solutions and techno-fixes. We will illustrate how the most regenerative solutions to the climate crisis require not only decarbonization, but also strategies to decolonize, detoxify, demilitarize, de-gentrify and democratize our economies and our communities.
