Solidarity Economy

Previously the Worcester Green Jobs Coalition, Worcester Roots is a founding member of the Worcester SAGE Alliance (Solidarity And Green Economy).


The alliance’s aim is to imagine and create a socially just and sustainable, cooperative economy in Worcester. We provide a forum for consensus-based discussion, resource sharing, and organizing, around ethical economic initiatives and relationships.

The Alliance organizes an annual conference, more info HERE.
