Voices of Jackson Rising

The Jackson Rising: New Economies Conference explored the possibility of making Jackson, Mississippi a center and example of economic democracy by building strong cooperatives and other forms of worker owned enterprises and financial institutions that will create jobs with dignity, stability, living wages, and quality benefits. The primary objective of the Conference was to educate and mobilize the people of Jackson to meet the economic and sustainability needs of our community.
