Jackson Rising: Ed Whitfield

Jackson Rising

  • Ed Whitfield of the Fund for Democratic Communities talks about low-income earners working together, job creation, shared funding, and the resources necessary to sustain the co-operative labor movement. His opening remarks touch on the idea that economic strategies must stay rooted within the community. Therefore, surplus can be shared amongst the people who need it most. Whitfield uses the cathedral metaphor for this idea, believing that building a democratic local economy is much like building a great cathedral - stone by stone.
