Symbiosis PDX is part of the inter-continental confederation of community organizations across the Americas, building a democratic and ecological society from the ground up.We are fighting for a better world by creating institutions of participatory democracy and the solidarity economy through community organizing, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city. This Congress and the confederation we hope it will found are collaborative co-creations among the many individuals and organizations who will jointly shape its vision and aims. Being driven by the intentions of its participants, the outcome of this meeting cannot be predetermined. As our project advances, the possibilities are endless. We are excited about where it could take us.This gathering is a congress, not a conference – its purpose is solidifying a confederation of directly democratic local organizations, and as such, the priority attendees are member organizations committed to accomplishing that goal. Delegates from our member organizations, as well as at-large members, will convene at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington for three days this May 2020 to build community, learn from one another, and launch a permanent confederation for decision-making, mutual aid, and resource-sharing between directly democratic grassroots institutions and movements across the continent.
The goals of the Congress of Municipal Movements are to:
- Connect organizers, activists, and thinkers who share our strategy and vision for a democratic society, to learn from one another and knit together our movement with new and strengthened relationships;
- Deliberate as a gathering of movements through a participatory and democratic process, to determine the vision and structure of the organization we create together; and
- Launch a PNW Regional confederation of local movements building dual power through radical democracy.
